"...Visually confident....[The] score is on the sweet, wistful side..."

Product Description:

The story of a young man with an incredible Houdini-like talent who is exploited by a number of greedy adults.

Product Description:

He can get away with anything ... that's why they call him The Escape Artist. Griffin O'Neal - the son of Ryan O'Neal and the brother of Tatum - makes his film debut as Danny Masters, the teenage son of the late Harry Masters. Harry was known as "the greatest escape artist, second only to Houdini," and Danny plans to achieve similar fame by attempting to follow in his father's footsteps. After leaving home to join his uncle (Gabriel Dell) and aunt (Joan Hackett) in their magic act, Danny finds himself in a world of trouble when he nonchalantly picks the pocket of Stu Quinones (Raul Julia), the wild, troublesome son of the town's corrupt mayor (Desi Arnaz). While attempting to extract himself from his harrowing predicament, Danny gradually discovers the previously unknown circumstances surrounding his father's death, the extent of the legacy he left behind - as well as the delicate, oftentimes fragile bond between fathers and sons.
