Circus of the Stars was a 1977-1994 American television special that typically aired once per year on the CBS network. It was a variety show in which television and movie stars would perform circus-type acts and stunts.
Emma Samms, a star of the ABC television series Dynasty, joined John Byron on stage for a levitation act. But Emma isn't quite sure how this trick will be performed, since she's certain that she can't be hypnotized.
Emma Samms is introduced wearing a lovely wedding gown.
They discuss what the performance is about and he explains that he will hypnotize her and make her float.
She explains that she can't be hypnotized and that its been tried before and doesn't work. She even apologizes that she can't help him with this trick.
Still, he requests her to go along and starts talking to her: "Close your eyes, relax.."
"Your getting sleepy, deep sleep..."
Unable to be hypnotized initially, she turns around and says "Is that it?.."
Perplexed, he wonders and says: "I don't understand this Emma, I've done this a hundred times, it usually works like this".
He snaps his fingers and suddenly Emma's eyes close as she falls into trance
Happy with the what has happened, he begins to speak: "Emma very good, now you will follow my every command.."
