Storyline

This is the 6th CBS Copperfield TV special, introduced by the host Ricardo Montalban. It is officially titled "THE MAGIC OF David Copperfield VI" but is better known as "The Magic of David Copperfield VI: Floating Over the Grand Canyon", in witch "Floating Over the Grand Canyon" is a reference to the first illusion, given that for the first time David Copperfield performs an illusion in witch he floats in midair. This illusion is one of the few no more repeated, and also one of the few conceived and filmed for the TV audience only, since it was not possible to have a live audience. However in this special he finally reveals the name of his duck, called "pet duck Webster" and showed for the first time in the "David's Fable" illusion, the last one of the third special. So, the illusions performed are: "Grand Canyon Levitation", "Vanishing Giraffe Neck", "The Girl And Her Bird", "Instant Photo" (aka "Kids Allisa And Bo"), "Love Magic Lost" (aka "One More Night"), "Audience Jumping Rubber...
