From the Archive: Harry Houdini


Harry Houdini, the world-famous Hungarian-born magician, illusionist, and escape artist, rose to fame in the early 1900s, as he toured Europe breaking out of chains and challenging police officers to handcuff him. He later became known for his elaborate escapes, freeing himself from underwater crates, suspended straitjackets, and even being buried alive. The magician also delved into filmmaking as part of his vaudeville act, creating and starring in a few short films. On what would have been his 124th birthday, CR MEN looks back at the man and legend, from stunts and escapes to his life at home.
