During its summer 1955 run, the It's Magic series brought some fantastic performers to television and filmed them in extended, uncut performances. In the show's brief life, entertainer Paul Tripp hosted top names like Roy Benson, Al Flosso, Fred Keating, Tommy and Betty Tucker, Kuda Bux, and comic A. Robins.

Long unseen, this It's Magic footage preserves invaluable renditions of Roy Benson performing his superb sleight-of-hand (including his famous Salt Pour and Chinese Sticks) in a faux naif character; the super-smooth second-sight code act of Tommy Tucker and Betty; the only surviving film of Fred Keating's trademark Needle Swallowing; Al Flosso in a great version of his Miser's Dream act; Kuda Bux's famed Blindfold Act; and the bizarre prop comedy of A. Robins.

The DVD includes all the original production numbers, additional illusions, and old-style promotional announcements.

All chapters on the DVD are accessible through a complete menu.

This DVD was created in collaboration with William McIlhany.

Running Time Approximately: 60mins
