DVD Review- Escapology featuring Dixie Dooley
Review by Tom Carrier-Editor

Las Vegas based escape artist Dixie Dooley and Penguin Magic have put together what is perhapsthe most comprehensive collection of information on escapes ever gathered on video or DVD. Dixie has combined his extensive knowledge with his many years of experience as a Vegas headliner to make this information available to escape artists. Rather than concentrating on one type of escape?? or its methods?? Dixie has created a visual encyclopedia of knowledge into the world of escapes.

Volume 1- Features escapes like Silk through Rope?? The Houdini Rope Tie??(the secret of which is worth the price of the entire DVD set)?? and other great rope ties. It also covers a very unique "escape" form a rubber band that will become one of your favorite walk around bits. Some handcuff and thumbcuff informations also covered in this volume.

Volume 2- This volume focuses on strait jacket escapes?? both standing and suspended?? and covers other restraint devices such as Shanghai Shackles and the Kellar Rope Tie. The two gems on this volume would be the information on generating publicity?? and Dixie's method of escaping from any handcuff.

Volume 3- If you are looking for large stage escapes?? this volume is for you. Covered is the Tom Horn Transport Belt?? Assistant's Revenge?? Metamorphosis?? Steel Strait Jacket?? Giant Milk Can Escape?? how to build your own escape box?? and various release forms for the escape artist.

These tapes are invaluable to the working escape artist?? or serious student of the art?? and should be in everyone's library.If you purchase the entire 3 volume set from Penguin Magic?? they will include a 4th DVD featuring Dixie performing some of his most famous escapes throughout his career.

Each volume is $ 34.95 each?? and the entire 3 Volume set is $ 99.95?? with free shipping to the U.S.?? Canada and Europe. The DVDs are available from Penguin Magic. 
"I went in to an audition for an upcoming variety show in Las Vegas. Now?? Las Vegas is flooded with Magicians. We probably have more magicians per capita than any city in the world. So I brought all my props in?? and one of the things I had thrown in was a straight jacket. When I walked in they saw all my toys and immediately told me they "didn't need a magician". I smiled and quickly replied??"great?? I'm an escape artist."

They said "OK" with some hesitation.I got up on stage?? did a straight jacket escape?? and walked out with a contract.

A week later?? one of the arenas here in Vegas contacted me wanting a half time show for a major college basketball game. Needless to say?? the angles we impossible. And everything I had that was angle-proof wouldn't play for 20??000 seats.The solution was simple?? they strapped me by my feet?? hoisted me up and I did an upside down straight jacket escape.Now I do it three times a week.

I now book 3-1 doing escapes rather than magic." --Tyas Frantz?? Full Time Las Vegas Performer
