Pat Parker was the main stage assistant to The Great Deville, and she was also his sister-in-law.
Billed as "Mdlle. Victoire", Pat's most memorable illusion was the "Divided Lady" illusion. She and Deville added a twist to the usual illusion, however- not only was Mdlle. Victoire cut into pieces, she was cut into twelve parts. And while she was in the cabinet, she was wrapped in a rope whose ends were held securely by two gentlemen from the audience. Of course, she alwasy managed to escape the blades unharmed.
