Charles Joseph Carter (1874–1936) or “Carter the Great” was an American magician in the height of the Magic Craze at the turn of the century. Among the highlights of Carter’s stage performances during his career were the classic “sawing a woman in half” illusion (an elaborate surgical-themed version with “nurses” in attendance), making a live elephant disappear and “cheating the gallows”, where a shrouded Carter would vanish, just as he dropped at the end of a hangman’s noose.
