Harold Alberto (August 14, 1882 - 1964) was born Harold McAuliffe in Australia.

He was a comedy magician, famous for his "More Water!" growing plant routine. He started his performing career in 1902, billing himself as "The Gay Deceiver".

In the 1930s, he left magic to work in Hollywood as a technical adviser for First National and Warner Bros. pictures.

Alberto committed suicide in California after years struggling with severe clinical depression.
