Storyline

Anthony Blake is a very compassionate and wealthy magician, who uses his talents as an illusionist and escape artist to help people in trouble. Max Pomeroy, a friend who is a syndicated columnist, describes him as "One of the few individuals in this age of numbness, who can still regard the suffering of a fellow human being as his own." He is motivated to help because he had been falsely imprisoned in South America for espionage. Written by C. Rohnacher <ARSU14A@prodigy.com>

Trivia

There was a writers' strike in 1973 (Writers Guild of America against the Association of Motion Picture and Television Producers) and the series greatly suffered because of that. Fans attribute to that fact the demise of the series after only one season. See more »

It was this t.v. show that rekindled my love of magic.
31 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

One of the best t.v. series ever done using magic in a drama (better than Blacke's Magic that came later). It brought magic into the modern age, while keeping the character believable, and yet, mysterious. Also an excellent show to inspire young people to take an interest in magic as a hobby/or even as a profession...it did for me, just when I had thought about hanging up my wand, this show hit the air and I was inspired to create an original style. Bill Bixby did a fine job in every episode, with the excellent coaching of Mark Wilson. I would love to see this series put onto DVD as a hero for the next generation of wand wavers. Our magical arts need more films like this one. (Steve Gathings, Modern Magical Entertainer.)
