Rocket Man From Mars


I showed you the great Foy Brown figure which was used by Doc Dougherty but you didn’t see the picture of how he presented this figure in his performance. He was the Man From Mars and wore a space suit.

Too bad the original flyer I have doesn’t show the complete outfit but here he is in his space helmet. Right from the 1950’s.

Ventriloquist Central is the brainchild of Dan Willinger and Steve Hurst. Dan is a ventriloquism enthusiast and ventriloquist figure collector. He has been collecting for over 25 years. He created the Ventriloquist Central Collection. It now has over 100 ventriloquist figures and over 50 of them are Frank Marshall figures. Steve is a ventriloquist as well as builder of ventriloquist figures. He also has a background in sales, marketing, building websites and computers. Because they both love the art of ventriloquism, the website Ventriloquist Central was born. For more information about the website, go to:

    The figure in the space suit looks like a Foy Brown figure. Check out those dimples.
