I did not catch the release of Death Defying acts released in limited movie houses earlier this year.
Working on a project with the girls for some Magician Magnets and costumes and of course had to have Mr. Houdini. Google has some amazing pictures of him and I walked away from research today very inspired.
This movie DDA directed by Gillian Armstrong looks to be based on the book “The Secret Life of Houdini” where it is hypothesized that Houdini was poisoned by the Spiritualist Societies he spent his later years debunking, and did not die by accident. Now I need to read the book and Netflix the movie.
I love the Tony Curtis version of Houdini’s life but Houdini’s legend will be interpreted through the ages. Mabey light a candle for him on Halloween.
