A Houdini movie directed by Tim Burton? Sounds like a dream come true, doesn’t it? Well, it exists!
Of course, this Tim Burton’s HOUDINI was a short film he shot in grade school instead of "reading the book", as he explained last year on the South Bank Show. (The "book" appears to be Christopher's Houdini The Untold Story.)
