First broadcast in 1957, Festival of Magic features the only complete footage of Cardini's act, filled with immaculate sleight-of-hand and brilliant magical moments. The show is considered a landmark, a must-see film every magician should watch and study.

The show also includes six other great acts: Robert Harbin with original illusions and a straitjacket escape, Sorcar with a Buzz Saw and other effects, June Merlin and her fairylike routines, Milbourne Christopher catching a bullet, Li King Si's Asian-style magic, and René Septembre's fast-paced bird routines.

The unique comedy of emcee Ernie Kovacs is also included, with several segments featuring elaborate magical sight gags.

All footage has been remastered for DVD and all chapters are accessible through menus.

This DVD was created in collaboration with Maurine Christopher and William H. McIlhany.

Running Time Approximately: 2hr 32mins
