Milbourne Christopher produced some of the earliest prime-time magic specials, now preserved in DVD form on this collection.
You'll see The World's Greatest Magicians (1967), featuring Roy Benson performing his Salt Pour, Chinese Sticks, and other classics; Marvyn Roy's show-stopping Mr. Electric act; Sorcar with his Hangman, Blindfold, and Buzz Saw routines; and Virgil and Julie's famous Spirit Cabinet.
Priceless moments on these shows include rare Houdini straitjacket footage in Houdini: The Impossible Possible (1969) and the great actor Zero Mostel chatting about art technique during 1962's Magic! Magic! Magic!
This two-DVD set has been created in collaboration with magic film historian William McIlhany, now with digitally enhancement and optimized sound. "...much better viewing than (anything) found on TV these days. It's a Houdini fan's dream come true...as entertaining as they are important and I highly recommend them."
