    • (recalling how he joined Howard Thurston's magic act)
      Joe Besser: I was so anxious to join his act that I stowed away that night on the train with Thurston's act on board, heading for Michigan. The following morning as the train pulled into Detroit, Thurston and his manager found me fast asleep on top of the lion's cage. They wired my folks to tell them where I was and from that day on I was part of the act.
