This is an original 1960 Dr. Zomb offset from my private collection of Magic posters, it measures approximately 14" x 20" and is in A+ condition.

From 1947 to 1954, Ormond McGill performed hypnotism and magic under the stage name of Dr. Zomb. His "Séance of Wonders" show featured horror-themed routines and costumed assistants typical of the midnight "Spook Shows" which were popular during that era. In addition to his career as a world-traveling magician and stage hypnotist, McGill was also a skilled hypnotherapist and a student of Eastern mysticism.

Ormond McGill made many of his greatest insights in recent years. He has combined his profound mastery of many hypnotic techniques; his deep personal understanding of Eastern systems of meditation, mysticism, wisdom and healing; and his creativity, vision, compassion, humor and life experience. Known as “The Dean of American Hypnotism”, Ormond McGill continued to teach courses and lecture right up until a few days before his death. He passed away on October 19, 2005 in town where he was born – Palo Alto, California. His best piece of advice: "Make life your playground, not your battlefield."

    I really like this poster, Palo Alto is about 2 1/2 hours from me. I have been there quite a few times on the way to S.Francisco.

    Thanks for the love shell59, glad you appreciate this poster as much as I do. I am located further down south in L.A. myself but many of the great magicians retired to northern California including Carter the Great.

    Thanks for the comment Vintagefran and glad you enjoy this poster, it is truly unique. I search the world for original Magic posters, some I find in my backyard, others in dusty barns, and some in far, far away continents. The thrill of the hunt is half the fun!
