Description

Morritt, Charles. Three telegrams from Charles Morritt to Houdini. February – June, 1914. Morritt’s brief messages include this tantalizing if cryptic remark: “Houdini – Palace Theatre Oldham – Forgot to enclose letter re: Donkey sending same. Morritt.” Each considerably worn, torn and chipped. Morritt was a successful performer with a checkered career, but a creative genius. He designed several illusions Houdini used in his full-evening magic show, as well as tricks performed at the famed Egyptian and St. George’s Halls in London.
