The Great Harry Houdini
“With each arrival in a new town, Houdini would offer $100 to anyone who provided handcuffs he could not escape, including the local police. He never had to pay the $100. His easy escapes provided excellent publicity for his shows and he quickly became a headliner, playing in large cities across the country.” Visit this fan site for a biography, and details about Houdini’s career and death.
