Art of Magic

Dale Harney performs the Finger Chopper

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.

Here Harney performs the famous Finger Chopper illusion.

Thanks to the efforts of many magicians who were able to provide Magicana with VHS copies of various episodes, they have been able to recover over 220 performance clips.
