Eddie Burnette was an American nightclub magician, performing mostly from the late 1940's into the early 1960's.
He performed as part of a magic duo, with his wife, Lucille.
Along with presenting the usual small illusions like the Substitution Trunk, the act featured a really impressive manipulation routine by Lucille.
The duo also played a number of U.S.O. tours in the 1950's.
