GV1545.S66 D49 1955
“…With his death was revealed one of the great illusions this master of illusions had perpetrated – his own identity.”
William Ellsworth “Billy” Robinson, a native of New York, is best known as Chung Ling Soo. As Soo, he remained silent and only spoke through an interpreter. His first words in public after assuming the identity were his last as his Bullet Catch trick malfunctioned, fatally wounding him.
