Dale Harney's Magic Palace

By Art of Magic - Friday, May 20, 2016


A Canadian television series, The Magic Palace was an inspiration for a generation of magicians. Filmed in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in the late 70s and early 80s, the show featured an enormous roster of performers from Canada, the United States, and Europe, including many whose names are still well known today. The show was conceived and hosted by Canadian stage illusionist, Dale Harney.

Thanks to the efforts of many magicians who were able to provide [Magicana](http://www.magicana.com "Magicana") with VHS copies of various episodes, they have been able to recover over 220 performance clips. To introduce you to Dale and his inventiveness, here is a clip of him performing one of his signature illusions, a variation of Houdini’s Water Torture Cell.
