Beating a Dead Horse: The Life and Times of Jay Marshall is an engaging, no-holds-barred look at the life of television pioneer, and dean of American magicians, Jay Marshall.

Beating a Dead Horse is also a story of fathers and sons. It is laugh-out-loud funny, honest, touching, and offers revelations along the way. Jay's son, Alexander Sandy Marshall, spent more than three years researching and writing about his maverick father.

Beating a Dead Horse captures the essence of a comedic geniusboth on and off stage. These pages reveal how wit and tenacity propelled Jay Marshall into becoming one of the most respected men in show business, and a world-renowned expert in the art of magic. Jay Marshall took control of his image and continually reinvented himself. He drew his own ads, pulled numerous publicity stunts, and even taught himself how to play the bagpipes. A man of many appetites, he was addicted to practical jokes and romantic escapades.

Beating a Dead Horse chronicles Jay's journey from his staid middle class upbringing in Abington, Massachusetts to his memorable performances on Broadway, television (14 appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show), New York's Palace Theatre, Radio City Music Hall, the London Palladium, opening for Frank Sinatra in Las Vegas, traveling the world, and becoming the Dean of the Society of American Magicians.

14 hours of Recording on 2 CDS; MP3 Audio format.
