|Genii, February 1970
Ironically, the film cost more in 1970 than it sold for today. This is a rare case of something Houdini related actually going down in value.
Speaking of good old fashioned celluloid, it's projected that distribution of motion pictures on film will cease in the U.S. by the end of 2013 and worldwide by 2015.
UPDATE: I recently found this ad in the December 1954 issue of Home Movies magazine that offers The Man From Beyond on 8mm "to the public for the first time."
