Harry Houdini the Great and Powerful ch 4,5,6


“Magic is the sole science not accepted by scientists, because they can’t understand it.”
-Ehrich Weiss (aka, Harry Houdini).

————————————————

One night in the city of Manehattan, the magician known as “The Great and Powerful Trixie” has moved on with her new life in her newly successful magic show. It was during this night that a certain Spirit of Chaos was spotted by the Stage Director, but he left mysteriously as he’d appeared.

After the show has been set up for the next night, Trixie walks to her apartment during an unscheduled storm which, passing an empty lot in the city’s neighborhoods, lightning struck that spot where a new theater appeared. Holding posters and a sign in lights with a very odd name.

“The Great Harry Houdini: Master of Mystery.”

“Houdini” on Spiritualism


Here’s a short clip from the 1998 film HOUDINI. Here Harry (Johnathon Schaech) articulates his stance on Spiritualism. It’s much more extreme than Houdini’s actual position, and he also gets the date of his mother’s death wrong (it was July 17, not the 16th). Still, I like how this movie took a dramatic timeout to allow a lecture from Houdini on “the lowest form of life.”

HOUDINI is available on DVD from the Warner Archive Collection.

Houdini Magic Locked Deck


A card is selected by a spectator and the spectator holds and locks the deck with a ring, never letting the cards out of his hands. A magic pass is given by the magician, and the spectator fans through the cards face up, card by card. The card has vanished! It can be found in the card case that was in full view, or wherever!
