Houdini direct from Hollywood

This autograph album page sold at Dreweatts & Bloomsbury‏ today for £1,612 ($2,018). I love the inscription. Houdini had just completed Terror Island and was embarking on his first tour of the UK in six years. Bradford was his first stop. During this tour he took pride in presenting himself as a freshly minted movie star -- "direct from Hollywood."

  1. Very nice!
    It was definitely a tour de force for Hollywood Houdini, with a lot of emphasis on The Grim Game.
    Thanks for sharing.
