Buried Alive 8-sheet Sells for $14,950

A "Buried Alive" 8-sheet by Otis Litho fetched $14,950 in Heritage's 2005 Rare Movie Poster Auction auction on November 11.

This poster promotes an escape that Houdini was just beginning to perform during the last season of his full evening show, which ended abruptly with his death in October 1926. The casket used in the escape was used to carry his body back to New York from Detroit.
