This is the second CBS Copperfield TV special, introduced by the host Bill Bixby, but is still titled "THE MAGIC OF DAVID COPPERFIELD", without the number "II" with which is better known.

The illusions performed are: "Tower Illusion", "Floating Mirror Ball" (aka "Floating Ballroom Mirror Ball"), "Loni's Poster", "The Jewel Thief", "Torn And Restored Cue Card", "The Alan Alan Great Escape" (performed by Alan Alan), "Ring Flight", "Cigarette Through Quarter", "The 50's", "Orange, Lemon, Egg And Canary", "Memories" (aka "The Attic"), "The Detective" and at the end a kind of conclusion of "Loni's Poster".
