Gazebo Illusion

The following is the grand finale to “World of Magic VI.” The special originally starred such variety show luminaries as Marie Osmond, Ricky Schroder, and Shields and Yarnell. What’s a Shields and Yarnell you may ask? That’s another story.

You can’t argue that Doug didn’t go all out with this one! In fact, it’s its shear level of joy and over the top nature that makes me love this sequence all the more! It also harkens back to a bygone day of television specials that, sadly, just doesn’t exist anymore. 

Originally Broadcast: February 15, 1981

    Shields and Yarnell were a huge husband and wife mime team. Second only to Marcel Marceau in North America.

    A secret was the paint wasn’t dry on the gazebo. During filming.
