This Episode originally aired on January 21st.  And it's full of great magic.  The Sleight of Hand magic that Mark does, "The 4 Card Assembly" is a fantastic bit of closeup.  I have a full explanation available on the site.  I'll put instructions here soon on how to get it.

​Time to be RE-ENCHANTED!

    I saw the Asrah (Azrah) Levitation for the first time in fall 1960, when I began viewing the Magic Land of Allakzam. I know I saw the Wilsons’ version, because I have thought about it many times during the intervening years (as you get older, it’s easy to forget how startling some magic effects can be to a young person who is developing an interest in magic, but I have never forgotten the impression this version made upon me). Like a lot of the Allakzam magic, the presentation of the Asrah Levitation is a great lesson in staging and theatricality. The use of a giant fan (rather than a hoop) adds to the atmosphere and mystery – and it is just as effective in getting the point across (“no wires”). The ingenious appearance of Nani as one of the attendants is quite unexpected – and the teaser at the beginning of the show with the two mysterious attendants insures that the viewer will register these characters in memory. Therefore, the exchange, when it occurs, is that much more effective. An astute viewer interested in the “art” of magic can still learn a lot from these shows.
