LINK: Magicians seek to conjure up new site for closed museum

Here's an interesting article in the L.A. Times about the artifacts from the Hollywood S.A.M. museum, which includes a collection of Houdini handcuffs and keys used by Bess during the final Houdini Seance seance.

The collection used to be housed in the basement of Washington Mutual bank at Sunset Blvd and Vine Street (which is where the Famous Players-Lasky studio sat when Houdini made his two films there). The collection was removed in 2004 and is now looking for a new home.
