Okay, here's one that truly tests just how "wild" you are about Harry (and Bess). This to me is the find of the century! It comes from our friend, Jon Oliver, the man who sleeps in Houdini's bed, who sent me the following in a Halloween eve email. Here's Jon:
I had an interesting thing happen yesterday.
Years ago I picked up Bess Houdini's dressing table set. It has mirror, and brushes, perfume bottles, and a tray. My wife Melissa and I were getting some stuff together and doing a little dusting when she discovered the brush is full of white hair.
This came from Ruth Kavanaugh, and she told me after Bess died, she received it but never used it.
Thus we have a bunch of Bess Houdini's hair.
Okay, maybe you find this more freaky than the find of the century (be sure to vote in our poll). But, in all seriousness, I rank this right up there with the perspiration-stained Houdini shirt collar and the pocket from the pajamas Houdini was wearing when he died as a unique relic worthy of a special kind of worship.
But if you're still not impressed, then stand by for something else from Jon that I will share tomorrow. You're bound (clue!) to love that one...
UPDATE: Poll results.
