***SPOILERS*** The "Pharaoh's Curse" the displacement of two bodies in mid air that was preformed once in 30 years with the late great master magician Johm Holland and his favorite student Harry Kellogg is mailed on a video tape to hot shot 25 year old magician "Mighty Mario" Devlin who's been fascinated with it since childhood. Mario can't quite figure out how it's done and wants the soon to retire Kellogg to let him in on it before, in having a weak heart, he checks out for good and takes the secret of the act along with him.

Getting invited to Kellogg's mansion Mario soon falls in love with Kellogg's secretary and personal squeeze Shannon who in knowing her lover Kellogg doesn't have long to live takes a shine to the handsome young man. It takes a while for Kellogg to let Mario in on the secret of the "Pharaoh's Curse" in getting him more and more interested in how it's done. Finally agreeing to show Mario how it's preformed Kellogg tells him that for the "Curse" be successful he-Mario-has to be part of it along with him which Mario eagerly accepts!

***SPOILERS*** Doing the mysterious act in front of a number of Kellogg's close and endearing friends Mario at first is shocked to see that in didn't work out like he expected it to. Him and Kellogg didn't change places in their spinning and 15 foot apart compartments like Kellogg and Holland did on the video tape that he got! Unknown to Mario is that they did but not in body but in soul!
