Re: The Magician
Nah. Bill Bixby starred as magician Anthony Blake. Per wikipedia:
"Blake was a professional stage magician who used his skills to solve crimes and help the helpless. Years earlier, Blake had been unjustly confined in a prison in an unnamed country in South America. He discovered a way to escape, which began his interest in escapology. This in turn led to a career in stage magic which made him rich and famous. He never forgot his imprisonment, and it motivated him to seek justice for others."
