Kuda Bux (17 February 1905 – 5 February 1981), born Khudah Bukhsh, was a Pakistani-born magician who centered his career around the seemingly impossible.
He was most famous for his blindfold drives, his ability to "see" objects held by spectators while spectaculary blindfolded, and for firewalking.
In fact, he billed himself as "The Man With the X-Ray Eyes".
Kuda Bux made numerous appearances on television, and even had his own television program in the early 1950s, called Kuda Bux, Hindu Mystic.
Ironically, Kuda Bux lost his vision due to glaucoma later in life.
Enjoy this film clip of an entertaining performer!
My friend and I were at Lou Tannen's magic shop when Kuda Bux stopped by. Yes, I'm that old! I have the memory but cannot remember the specifics. He did talk with us.
