Handcuff key bends and breaks
Gothenburg the 18th February, 1974
Through the Swedish newspapers we have had the possibility to follow your appearances in the different countries. We got the opinion that they receive you with the same great wonder and admiration as it has been here in Sweden. Attached herewith we’re sending you articles from the newspaper “Expresser” dated 15th Jan. 1974. The reporter who has been interviewing you at the hotel writes that he aimed to prove that you were a nut but he finally was convinced that you are a holder of an unexplainable intern power. We are even sending you an article from a magazine. It’s Karin and Ake Falk who are telling about their meeting with you.
Furthermore we want to tell you about the strange thing which happened short after your departure from Gothenburg. As you may recall you borrowed our handcuffs on our way to the airport. You looked at them and then gave them back to us undamaged with the key hanging on its ring. We placed the handcuffs with the key in its place in the car and put a lock over it. A couple of hours later when we returned to the police headquarters we found the key broken into pieces laying on the floor in front of the front seat of the car. The handcuffs were still on their place. We cannot find any explanation concerning the removal of the key from the drawer-box to the floor. Can you? It is not a question of the key, we have got a new one and we saved the broken one at the headquarters as a souvenir to remember you. We have taken a picture of the key and we are sending you a few of them.
The reason why our letter is a little bit late is that we waited to look at your TV-program. We hope you will excuse us for that. We are sending even the articles from the newspapers comments about your recent program. We hope you can find someone who can translate the articles for you. Your program was a great success. The Swedish Radio and TV got more than 7,000 telephone calls from the Swedish people. Peoples who had their spoons and forks bent and so on.

“There is no spoon!”
“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”
Tannens Magic Blog
“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”
James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
