Terror Island reaches Norway...maybe

This week has been dominated by movie or poster news, so let's end it with a beautiful fusion of both. This Norwegian poster from the great Arthur Moses Collection appears to be for Houdini's second Paramount feature, Terror Island. Online translators don't seem to like the title -- best I can determine is it translates to "Untouchable."


It's a wonderful poster, however, Arthur admits he isn't certain this is from Houdini's day. He thinks this might have been done by a Norwegian artist for a library or National exhibit in the 1970s or '80s, but he isn't sure. "Hopefully someone will post a reply," says Arthur.

So does anyone have insight into this poster they'd like to share? Feel free to post in the Comments or shoot me an email and I will forward it to Arthur.


  1. A Norwegian Houdini Poster. This is super cool to me because I have a tad bit of Norwegian heritage in my family. Sadly, I don't speak a word of it, lol.

  2. "Invincible, unbeatable, insuperable, insurmountable, unsurpassable" were possible translations I found on a dictionary web site.

  3. Thanks, Eric. Those sound better to me than "Untouchable."
