Two Happy Days connections with Murder with Mirrors. The director is Anson Williams, who played Potsie in Happy Days, and it also features Rance Howard (born Harold Rance Beckenholdt), who is the father of Ron Howard, who played Richie Cunningham in Happy Days.
Here the murder happens at a magic show, with Paul Madison drowning in a trick gone wrong. Paul is played by Bruce Abbott, who played Judge Nicholas Marshall in two seasons of one of my favorite series, Dark Justice (Ramy Zada played the Judge in one season).
Emma Samms (born Emma Elizabeth Wylie Samuelson) appears as another magician. Emma has British and achieve much fame in shows such as Dynasty and the Colbys, a spin off of Dynasty. I sometimes wonder why The Colbys was not called The Colbies, but maybe it's a grammatical thing.
Also Ray "House Calls" Buktenica appears as a shady business type character.
It was impressive seeing the illusions throughout the show.
