I was just wondering about what ever happened to female magician June Merlin. I know her Ex-husband Bill McCombical is alive and well in Southern California but I never heard what ever happened to her.

Any information is greatlly appricated.

Thank You

You Should ask Billy McComb, but I believe she is living in Spain.

Thanks a lot. So that means she is the only magician alive who performed on the 1957 Milbourne Chistopher Special. I was wondering about that.

Okay, maybe I'm wrong, but didn't the Amazing Randi perform an escape from a "medieval spiked tomb" (Iron Maiden), or was that on one of Christopher's other TV specials? He's still alive.

Dr. Midnight,
It had to be one of his other specials. I remember wathicng the 1957 special in the Mueseum of Television And Radio a few years back. He also talks about the show in his "History Of Magic" book. The 1957 special had him do a bullet catch with a copy of the letter written by Thurston to Harry Houdini. The show had Robert Harbin doing a Head Mover, chair suspension, Mr. and Mrs. Cardini, Socar doing a Buzz Saw, June Merlin doing tricks with animals, and few others who I can't remember at the moment. I know that Amazing Randi is alive and well.

June is alive and living in Spain.

Some old Pathe movies of her as June McComb, and of Billy McComb and her are available from http://www.Britishpathe.com

Search "McComb". Also search "magician". Some neat film of Tommy Cooper, Alan Alan, David Nixon, and others. Free downloads in low quality, pay a reasonable price for high quality.

I can recall seeing a picture of a young June Merlin in an old Ireland's Year Book that I purchased several years ago. The picture most probably only captured a fraction of her beauty, but she looked stunningly gorgeous in the picture. I understand that she was a former winner of the 'Miss Northern Ireland' title.
