Storyline

David Katz is a world famous magician and he comes to Denver with his group to perform for a charity gala for disabled children. Also there is Perry and Della as all three are supporters of the charity. Kate Ford, an assistant with an arrogant attitude, tells David that she is, from now on, going to do an illusion in which an assistant is raised in a glass coffin only to disappear when the coffin is opened up in the air (while the assistant climbs out before the coffin is raised.) After a one night stand with David, Kate is pregnant and she blackmails David with this. David and his wife Judy can't have children so that comes as a double blow to them. However Kate, with her attitude, creates much hatred at her from the rest of the group. At the gala, the glass coffin is raised but when it opens Kate's dead body falls to the ground - strangled. While Perry and Della set out to try to find the killer, Ken and PI Terry Weidner set out to find out more about Kate but they discover that ... Written by Lee Horton <Leeh@tcp.co.uk>

13 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

they decide to post a list of "special extras" - I just wanted to inform IMDb that I was the usher at the beginning of the movie. Pretty silly to mention, but hey - that's just 10 seconds of my 15 minutes of fame, and I'm not letting it go unmentioned. I was in Denver when they shot the earlier parts of the episode at the Paramount Theater in Denver, Colorado. Peter Scalari worked very hard on the magic sequences and it was quite entertaining for all who were lucky to be invited to "work" as the audience. Although I never got to see Raymond Burr in action that day (they shot his parts a few days later), he returned to shoot another of his movies I signed up to work on but it never came to see the light of television. I know this makes for quite the biased commentary on my view of the film, but I enjoyed watching every minute. (even all the other ones that I wasn't in.) Cheers! Tommy Sandman
