LINK: How many degrees away from Kevin Bacon is Harry Houdini?

I love playing the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon game, but I've never thought to try it with Houdini. Well, iTricks has discovered Houdini's Bacon number: 4.

Click on the headline to find the steps which take us in four moves from the Master Mystifier to Master Bacon (while I try to think of a way to do it in 3).

Calculating Bacon numbers is a new "easter egg" feature from Google. Just type in "Bacon number" plus any actor's name to get a result.


  1. Very interesting that the Grim Game is involved in the solution

  2. BTW, my Bacon number is 3.

    I wrote Boot Camp starring Mila Kunis.

    Mila Kunis and Emma Stone appeared in Friends with Benefits.

    Emma Stone and Kevin Bacon appeared in Crazy, Stupid, Love.

  3. My bacon number is also 3 but it can be beat with: I beat it with Bess Houdini. There was a link with through Bess' co-star Betty Compson claiming it to be Pita Wilson. There must be 2 actresses with the same name as the movie that connects them was made in 1935 but the Pita Wilson they use to connect is only 41 years old.

  4. Google now supports Bacon Number searches! The search syntax is simple:
