The late Doug Henning was a Canadian magician, illusionist, and daring escape artist who was not only a great performer, but also had an amazing fashion sense. Henning “brought magic to the masses in the 70s. Before Copperfield, Blaine, or Angel there was Doug Henning, only his costumes and poses were WAY better!” During the 1970s and early 80s, Doug Henning gave many incredible performances. More than 50 million viewers tuned in for the December 1975 broadcast of Doug Henning’s World of Magic, hosted by Bill Cosby, during which Henning successfully reproduced Harry Houdini's famous and extraordinarily dangerous Chinese Water Torture Cell escape.
