Milton Berle moved into television's "cable era" in 1981 with one of HBO's first specials, The Magic of the Stars. Berle produced the show under his new Milton Berle Productions banner, and served as on-camera host. Lucille Ball headed an all-star cast that included Walter Matthau, Jack Lemmon, Dick Van Patten, Dick Shawn and Ruth Buzzi. The "gimmick" of the show: the celebrities each performed a magic act. Lucy, for example, executed feats of levitation.

Steve Dacri taught Milton card magic.
