(Mirror of Death)
by Donal O'Hanlon
castle actor Mike Close...possibly as an extra in an episode of
Gilligan's Island. Mike is standing in front of the Mirror of
Death in an area which later became the crush and seance rooms.
According to Anita Fritsch-Wheeler, a former castle actress and
manager, the mirror was actually two rooms made to look alike.
The rooms were separated by a sheet of glass made to look like a
mirror. Uncle Theo was a talking head that was under the
mirror and would talk to the guests. The actor that controlled
him was in a side room that later became the make-up room.
