After years of keeping the Ladder Levitation exclusive to himself Walter Blaney granted performance rights to Illusionist David Copperfield. Copperfield performed the Ladder Levitation on his China Tv Special in 1982. The performance here is seen as recorded at the American Embassy in China.
Over the years Walter Blaney performed his Ladder Levitation Illusion on numerous television shows including, The Tonight Show, Merv Griffin, The Diane Shore Show, To Tell The Truth, The Mike Douglas show and many others. Eventually Walter released the effect to other Magicians including Illusionist David Copperfield and Lance Burton among others.
Clips from a few of these television appearances were edited together by Timothy Drake into the video montage seen below. Enjoy!
