Here is a segment I am jokingly calling the "Nightbeat Magician", from the program "The Wonderful World of Magic" (which starred Bill Bixby as host) that will be especially interesting to Classic Chicago TV fans.


The WGN overnight news program Nightbeat (during it's hey-day in the 70's) used as it's theme a section of the tune heard during this french magician's act - at about a minute and a half into the video. (can anyone make out the guy's name?)

What is the name of the song and what is it's origin? Let's see if we can solve this mystery of the title and composer of the Nightbeat theme now that we have this new bit of evidence. Sounds like it could be from the soundtrack to a movie in the 1950's...

(by the way, IMDB.com has no entry for The Wonderful World Of Magic - I wonder why? Anyone remember what station-day-time this program aired on in Chicago?)

This aired on local Rockford, IL TV likely sometime in 1977. (not Chicago, but close enough)
