THE MAGICIAN starring Bill Bixby

COMPLETE COLLECTION

 

The Magician television series that ran from October 2, 1973 to May 20, 1974 on NBC. It starred Bill Bixby as stage illusionist Anthony "Tony" Blake, a playboy philanthropist who used his skills to solve difficult crimes as needed. Blake was a professional stage magician who used his skills to solve crimes and help the helpless. Years earlier, Blake had been unjustly confined in a prison in an unnamed country in South America. He discovered a way to escape, which began his interest in escapology. This in turn led to a career in stage magic which made him rich and famous. He never forgot his imprisonment, and it motivated him to seek justice for others. Initially, Blake was based out of his privately owned jetliner, which was outfitted as a mobile residence. Midway through the program's run, the idea of the airplane was dropped and he began to live in a posh apartment at The Magic Castle, a real club devoted to magic acts. The show is noteworthy in that Bixby insisted on doing all of the magic himself, without any trick photography. In addition to escapes, Bixby performed feats of sleight of hand, mentalism, and large illusions. EXCELLENT QUALITY. COMPLETE COLLECTION.
