Did I see Harry Blackstone Cut a Womans' Head Off?

Does anyone remember a Harry Blackstone Jr. television decapitation that traumatized me as a child in the later 80s early 90s?

I distinctly recall a television special with Harry Blackstone in which he put his pretty blond assistant in a guillotine and cut off her head. Then he placed her head on a counter and started having a conversation with it. I believe this would have aired on broadcast television, as we did not have cable, but I could be mistaken.

I was mortified as a child, but now I'm downright curious.

Anyone remember?

In the lateish 80s, a cheesy old 3-d film The Mask was shown on network tv. There was some tie-in with a fast food partner that sold special 3-d glasses for the upcoming showing. On the network airing, that Blackstone fellow did bumper material for it (also in 3-d!), of which the decapitation trick played a part.
