    • David: (speaking in the 1990s about buying the Buzz Saw illusion built for Orson Welles) The first thing Claudia asked me when she saw it was 'Does it still work?' When I told her that it did, she smiled and said 'Let's try it out!' That surprised me a little, as it's a scary illusion, and before I could say anything, she'd climbed onto the table, stretched herself out below the blade, and was strapping herself in ready to be sawn in half. I couldn't believe how eager she was to try it out, but I also couldn't resist the opportunity to use it to saw her in half. And she loved the experience so much, she even suggested putting it in my show, but I told her it was just too precious for that.
