The Magician

joseph bill series bixby

(NBC, 3/17/1973, 90 mins). In this pilot for the 1973-74 series, a dapper magician uses the wizardry of his craft to help people in distress and exposes a staged plane crash when asked by the mother of one of the victims to check into a possible conspiracy. In the later series, Bill Bixby, Keene Curtis and Jim Watkins were joined by Joseph Sirola as the fictional manager of Hollywood’s real life House of Magic, the club frequented by magicians where the shows were filmed. The title of this TV movie and the subsequent series had nothing to do with Ingmar Bergman’s famed, similarly titled 1959 classic.
