In one scene, David ('Bill Bixby') does a magic trick and "magically" finds a quarter behind the Louie's ear. In real Life, Bill Bixby was an accomplished stage magician and was a respected member of the Hollywood magic community, belonging to The Magic Castle, an exclusive club for magicians. Bixby also starred in a short-lived TV series called The Magician
(1973), in which he played a former stage magician and amateur crime solver. In that series, Bixby insisted on doing all of the magic tricks without resorting to trick photography. See more

This is repeated at least three times back and forth easily revealing this production money-saving goof. See more
The power of the Loa casts evil on you, non believer!
Dr. David Bruce Banner
Is that your power, violence? Is that the curse of the spirits? Because if it is, we have nothing to fear. Because he bought his power as you can buy his power, in a magic store!
