    Walford Bodie, whose real name was Samuel Murphy Bodie (1869-1939), was a Scottish showman, hypnotist, ventriloquist and stage magician, famous for his 'mock' electrocutions involving a replica of 'The Electric Chair'. He also performed an act of 'Bloodless Surgery', claiming he could use electricity, hypnosis and manipulation to cure 'all kinds of ailments and disabilities.' His performances were enormously popular in the early 20th century, and inspired both Harry Houdini and Charlie Chaplin.
