LINK: A mysterious Houdini girlfriend

The single most viewed post here on WILD ABOUT HARRY is my blog about The Illicit loves of Harry Houdini. It's amazing, but every day that post draws substantial traffic. Sex sells.

Now Dean over at Carnegie: Magic Detective is wading into these same steamy waters with a candidate I missed: Hattie Mooser. If you can't get enough of this kind of thing, and judging by my stats, you can't, head on over to Dean's blog and hear the tale or when Harry met Hattie.

And while you're there, be sure and check out Dean's Houdini Hired To Entertain in Backyard, the untold story (as far as I know) of Houdini being hired to perform an overboard box escape at a private party.


  1. For Jon,

    What movie is the above picture?

    Who is the woman?

    Would it be Lila Lee?

    1. That's from Haldane of the Secret Service so I believe that's Gladys Leslie.
