But the rest of the world had a better shot at seeing the film. I've never been able to determine weather The Great Houdinis got a theatrical release in Europe (as some American T.V. movies did back then), but I do know it was released on VHS in The Netherlands, France, England and Australia. Below are a few covers for the film on VHS. To my knowledge, all of the home video versions carry the title The Great Houdini and not the original broadcast title, The Great Houdinis (which can be seen here).

Thanks to Robert from Sydney, Australia for the Star Video artwork and Kai Andersen for the Dutch sleeve.
