Harry Leon Collins, this famous beloved “corporate” magician of Frito Lay is buried in Cave Hill Cemetery, a 300 acre Victorian era cemetery (on the National Registry of Historic Places). A life size statue of the magician stands over his grave. Collins was a 20 year employee of Frito Lay during the day. At night he was Louisville’s most popular magician, “Mr. Magic“. In 1970 Frito Lay named him their official corporate magician as he toured the country and world performing magic tricks and paying homage to corn chips. He appeared on hundreds of television commercials and magazine ads. I remember him on TV.
