On the occasion of his 85th birthday, Houdini Himself has posted this rare signed still of Tony Curtis from the 1953 film Houdini ("Joe" is Joe Dunniger, btw). What’s cool about this is, aside from a quick glimpse in the film, this is the first still I’ve seen of Curtis recreating this famous Houdini pose.
Recreating this pose has become de rigor publicity for the men who have played Houdini. Who did it best? You decide.
