La Maitre du Mystere

The mighty Arthur Moses offers us a peek today at a new find. These French Pathe movie programs from 1920 advertise Houdini's serial, The Master Mystery (La Maitre du Mystere). Some very nice imagery here. Note the photo of the elevator shaft scene on the last program. This is not a shot I'm familiar with, but it appears to be the inspiration for the spectacular French Master Mystery poster that sold in auction in 2008.

Merci Arthur!
