"Who had been there on Liberty Island during the filming of the show and would know the truth. I called the personnel and he agreed to talk. My name is Ed Alonzo. I'm known as the Misfit of Magic. And maybe remember me is Max, the owner of the diner and saved by the bell? It was also the guy who made that curtain go up and down in front of the Statue of Liberty. Actually, there are two guys who was a big curtain. It was 18 years old. The time the young magician says he stayed overnight at David Copperfield's parent's house in New Jersey, before the shoot. I told them I'd heard the audience might have been in on it. I told him what the Park service guy had told me that an audience member had said she had been paid to be there really say I'm totally surprised. It is possible that maybe some of the people were paid to be there on Lee because they couldn't get enough regular people with the amount of tickets that they gave out. Sometimes you do use paid extras in an audience, he says. They show up on time and you can tell me the dress nicely. But even if they were paid people they would have not have known how the trick was done. There was no reason for for anyone to know ahead of time. Copperfield's team, by the way, says no audience members were paid. They say the woman who claims she was paid to be there must have been on the production staff. And it says an enormous amount of work was done to make sure the trick would fool people that didn't want to talk about her confirmed the mechanics of the trick, But he said they did a whole dry run beforehand out in Los Angeles. The idea to make the Statue of Liberty disappear came from an illusion Designer named Jim Steinmeier. Copperfield's team with the help of a guy named Don Wayne at it all kinds of improvements and built the stage. As a test, they used it to make the moon disappear. They said the stage of basically in this parking lot. Yeah, we're in a parking lot, because this this stage was enormous. David thought that you know, we have to do kind of a demonstration to work up the bugs before we haul this thing to New York. Bunch of top magicians in L. A. Sat on the stage. Copperfield made the moon disappear, and everyone gave notes tweaks to make a better so you could fool a real audience that says the night of the filming of the Statue of Liberty. Was clear to him that the people in the audience were fooled. Ask him why? In a couple shots, the audience seemed a little fake to me. He had a pretty good explanation, which is that they filmed the trick multiple times. Copperfield's team officially denies this and says it's so though I think that maybe after we did about the third or fourth time, some of the people that were sitting on this platform May have had.
What's the History of the Statue of Liberty?
"The Statue of Liberty has become such a legendary representation of New York City and America itself. It's hard to imagine a time before it found a place in the skyline it all began in the eighteen sixties when French poet and Anti Slavery activist Eduard elaborate proposed the idea of a post civil war commemoration of America's America's newfound freedoms and democracy he believed France should give a great monument a gift to the United States to celebrate both the unions victory in the civil war and and the abolition of slavery the idea resonated with a young French sculptor named Frederick August Bartholdi who'd been experimenting with large-scale Works Bartholdi started hearted drafting designs and the original goal was to complete the ambitious artistic endeavor by eighteen seventy six to mark the centennial of the American Declaration of Independence The statue that she was set to represent the goodwill between America and France. There was a little financial snag though well a big financial snag in both participating nations to raise the necessary funds for construction French government introduced everything from public fees to a fundraising lottery in the United States held auctions and benefit beatrix events and Lazarus pens the new classes for the art and literary auction to help generate money for the pedestal while all this was taking place. Bartholdi recruited did an experienced engineer to help troubleshoot structural issues with the massive sculpture enter Alexander Gustave Eiffel the man responsible for another internationally recognized architectural wonder the Eiffel Tower together with Bartholdi. I will help designed the four hundred and fifty thousand pound structure. That's about two hundred thousand kilograms and specifically specifically had a hand in planning out the Iron Pylon and secondary skeletal framework. The Statue of Liberty was finally completed in France in July of eighteen eighty four and arrived in three hundred and fifty individual pieces packed in two hundred and fourteen crates in New York Harbor in June of eighteen eighty five ten years after her original. Oh projected debut the statue of Liberty became an official New York City icon and President Grover Cleveland oversaw the official dedication ceremony on October twenty eighth of eighteen eighty six fix lady liberty herself has a full and proper name the Statue of Liberty enlightening the world. The statue's face was apparently inspired by the the face of Berkeley's mother made from iron steel and three hundred layers of hand hammered copper weighing thirty tons. Lady Liberty Herself stands approximately one hundred and eleven feet. That's thirty four meters tall. She reaches an astounding three hundred and five feet or ninety three meters. If you take her pedestal and torch into account that's the equivalent height of a twenty two story building the copper coating her is three thirty seconds of an inch thick or about two point five millimeters which happens to be the same thickness missile to American pennies placed together while the internal structure is comprised of cast iron and stainless steel as for her signature Green Hue. That's due to the natural. Oh Exhibition of that copper coating when the statue was originally completed in eighteen eighty six she had more of a copper penny tinge but over about three decades the brown hue fully oxidized to form the sea green color otherwise known as a Patina in Nineteen eighty-four. The statue got a makeover when her original torch was replaced by a new copper one covered in twenty four karat gold leaf the original torch is on display the monuments museum while the Statue of Liberty emerged from a desire to represent an alliance between America and France. Its core meaning is a mutual desire for freedom liberty for all people all over the world. It's no accident that the statue of Liberty was placed face southeast from that vantage point. She makes a perfect welcoming symbol for visitors and immigrants from her home on Liberty Island. The seven pointed crown on her head symbolizes. The seven continents em I'm seven seas and the broken shackles at her feet represent freedom from oppression. Lady Liberty possesses a few other symbols as well. She's holding a tablet in her left hand end inscribed with the date July four seventeen seventy six the date of American independence written in Roman numerals and that giant torch in her right hand. It's meant to represent represents enlightenment a fitting accessory for liberty enlightening the world as for the Lazarus poem some history experts like Robert j McNamara believe if that while Bartholdi had originally envisioned lady liberty as a symbol of America exerting its own freedom the new colossus represented America as a refuge for oppressed people seeking liberty and an understanding by people born as American citizens that had we been born elsewhere. We might be similarly seeking liberty from oppression and suffering while there may be countless interpretations dissections and Miss Readings of Lady Liberty's many possible meanings one thing is for sure. She has indeed served as America's one woman.
