Looking for Mr. Houdini

You just never know where Harry is going to show up next. Check out this screen capture from the 1977 movie Looking for Mr. Goodbar starring Diane Keaton. Does that poster back on the wall look familiar?

The poster is a well-known Houdini lithograph by J. Zier advertising Houdini’s escape from an Amsterdam jail in 1903. Because the poster used here is in black and white, my guess is it's most-likely a blow-up from the book 100 Years of Magic Posters (1976).
