The Story of the Blaney Ladder Levitation



Walter "Zaney" Blaney, one of our most memorable speakers at the Magic Collectors Weekend in Chicago, revisits his talk on the <strong>History of the Ladder Levitation</strong> in this video chapter from the documentary series (by Timothy Drake), "Still Zaney After All These Years".

In 2010, we were not only treated to Walter's wonderful talk about the history of his world-famous Ladder Levitation, but also witnessed the very last performance of this legendary illusion. It was the hit of the convention.

In this clip, Walter tells the story about the illusion's evolution with guest appearances by David Copperfield, Lance Burton, James Dimmare, Jeff McBride, Peter Reveen, Steve Dacri, Mike Caveney, Julie Eng, Becky Blaney and Stan Allen.
