Storyline

This is the 14th CBS Copperfield TV special, introduced by the host James Earl Jones, who talks about the "flying dream" while David Copperfield is sitting at a large desk in a room where the window illuminates only the desk itself. The illusions performed are: "Heaven On The Seventh Floor" (aka "Elevator"), "Interlude", "Graffiti Wall", "Squeeze Box", "Mind Control", "Orson Welles From Beyond", "Touch The Magic - Destinations Of Flight" (the second of the interactive games performed in four specials), "Flying" and then "Flying Outside Of The Theater".
