Houdini

"Good"

Houdini Review


This fanciful biography of Harry Houdini, starring Tony Curtis, is heavily fictionalized (Houdini dies from an underwater escape attempt in the film instead of peritonitis) but plenty of fun. Curtis and Janet Leigh, as Mrs. H, make for a memorable movie pair, but the film glosses over what was, by all accounts, a very interesting life.
