Houdini makes it onto the Hollywood Walk of Fame...again

Houdini has once again made it onto Hollywood's famous Walk of Fame, this time by being selected as one of 50 celebrities that make up Topps new American Pie "Hollywood Walk of Fame" subset trading card set. Houdini joins Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, and Douglas Fairbanks Sr. as the only silent film stars in the pack. Way to go, Harry!

Houdini received his Walk of Fame star on Halloween 1975. It is located on the corner of Orange and Hollywood Blvd. next to the Chinese Theater and within view of The Magic Castle. The star was restored and rededicated in 2008.

  1. They've also got Abbott and Costello, Martin and Lewis, Bob Hope and others. Pretty cool trading cards. Just wondering who is buying these? And if they dont come with that really hard piece of credit card sized gum, is it really worth it?
