AMAC'S "FIND THE LADY" ILLUSION
Granville Taylor (FAUST THE MAGICIAN) owns Amac's original equipment and sole performing rights throughout the world for this illusion since he bought it from Lucille Lyle in 1960.
A London Film Production company, Spicer & Moore, hired Pendle Hippodrome Theatre in Colne, Lancashire for one week, and this world-famous illusion act was rehearsed and filmed from April 11th to 15th 2011 for a documentary about the history of "FIND THE LADY" from around 1920 when Amac invented it and headlined with it in the USA during the 1920's and 30's, to the illusion being bought by THE GREAT LYLE in 1941 for his "Cavalcade of Mystery" Show who featured it in his shows until he died in 1955. FAUST bought the illusion, with sole performing rights throughout the World, from Lucille Lyle in 1960.
