Storyline

This is the third CBS Copperfield TV special, introduced by the host Jack Klugman, and is the first one to be numbered.

So, the illusions performed are: "Appearing Car Keys", "Floating Ferrari", "The Couple", "Ring Finger", "Broken Heart", "Art Gallery" (aka "Linking Rings"), "Shimada Parasol Act" (performed by Haruo Shimada), "Record Album Prediction" (aka "Record Albums") and "David's Fable" (aka "The Fable"). In the opening titles 6 stars are accredited and in the last illusion a duck appears for the first time, and Copperfield often will ripropose it in future illusions, revealing also the name, not yet known to the ...
