Merlin Mania!

What you are about to see are two very rough, but very cool commercials for the original production of  “Merlin!

As mentioned before, Merlin was Doug’s 1982 follow-up to “The Magic Show.” Directed by his old college mate Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters, Stripes, Twins), the show boasted huge production values and illusions. Starring in the title role, Doug led a production like none other in its technical and visual achievements. As a full recording of the show is not widely available, these two commercials give us a glimpse into a show that is now thought of as a stunning, but flawed masterpiece.

Stay with the show past the two countdown clocks, you won’t regret it!
