Happy Birthday Harry Houdini

Just realized tomorrow (Wed) is Harry Houdini’s birthday: March 24, 1874. He was the greatest. I was a huge fan of his as a kid. Still am. Happy Birthday Harry. :notworthy:

Surprising what films of him exist, from 100 years ago. Here’s a decent little documentary.

And here he is escaping from a straightjacket hanging upside down over the street.

What, nobody cares about Harry but me? :frowning:

The guy was awesome.

He doesn’t look anything like Tony Curtis.

I loved that movie when I was a kid.

This thread very nearly escaped me.


Wouldn’t have missed much anyway. It’s just an illusion.
