Bill Bixby’s Floating Ball

By Tom Interval

From 1973–1974, Bill Bixby starred in The Magician, a prime-time television series about a wealthy magician who uses his unique skills to outwit bad guys trying to victimize those who ask for the conjurer’s help. In this popular promotional photo, Bixby is levitating a steel ball, a classic trick known in the magic circle as the Zombie Ball. The image was begging to be animated, so I obliged. Hope you enjoy. Keep your eyes open for more posts about Bixby and The Magician in the near future. (Animation copyright 2016 Tom Interval)
