Quite a magician and quite a show, one which could afford to have three buffoons stand around in clown heads. Virgil's greatest trick, however, was marrying the lovely Julie Capriotti. In 1929, the magician asked for a volunteer from the audience and young Julie stepped up. The Great Virgil injured her on stage! While visiting her in the hospital, they fell in love and married two years later.
