David Copperfield in 1980 : the "Goldfinger" tribute magic tour

European audience discovered David Copperfield in 1995, but David was well known in North America since a long time. At the end of the 70's , David was young, but had already his tv special, as you will see with this show "The Magic of David Copperfield" released in 1980.
David , 24 years old at that time was young and romantic, but his magic was already stunning. Just like now, it's impossible to see the trick!
The not-to-be-missed tour is this tribute to James Bond's "Goldfinger" , at 12 minutes from the beginning of the show. Not only the tour is great , but also funny - David play a James "Bondage" (!) looking after Mr "Ringfinger" - it's full of James Bond jokes, and there is a perfect use of John Barry's famous score.
The other great thing is that you can feel the "innocence" of that period, something that i hope we have not lost forever.
