The first time was at the end of an interview on a Mexican talk show, when a local magician sawed her in half in an illusion called Clearly Impossible. The second time was when David Copperfield sawed her in half using an antique Buzz Saw illusion that used to belong to Orson Welles, and that Welles had used to saw in half Rita Hayworth, Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe.
