Vaudeville Spirit Cabinet Act (once the front curtain of the cabinet is closed, all manner of manifestations occur eg: ringing bells & tambourines, de-materialisations, and a surprise jaw-dropping climax using an audience member's jacket. Yet the medium is still firmly tied up every time the curtain opens within seconds of it having being closed, when every manifestation occurs. Just as it was all performed from the 1840's to 1920's during the height of the Spiritualism and Houdini eras.
