Recording of the Final Houdini Seance

Here is a recording of the famous Final Houdini Seance held atop the roof of the Hollywood Knickerbocker Hotel on October 31, 1936. It is narrated by George Boston and features the voices of Edward Saint and Bess Houdini. This recording was released by Hudson Records in 1959 and reissued by Mark56 in 1975.

The 1959 and 1975 LP recordings of the Final Houdini Seance.

Happy Easter.


  1. That's the first time I've listened to it in full. Thanks.

  2. I don't believe that was a recording made atop a building in Hollywood in the 30's .. No way!

    1. I tend to agree with you, Professor. I think this might have been studio made after the fact. I don't think they would have been able to get that quality on the roof.
