Houdini (1998) now available on DVD

Great news! The 1998 TNT Original Movie Houdini is now available on DVD. The DVD was released yesterday as an on demand via the Warner Archive Collection. You can order it direct from the Warner Archive website or

Houdini stars Johnathon Schaech as Harry, Stacy Edwards as Bess, and Mark Ruffalo as Theo (Hardeen). It's a traditional biopic (yay!) with outstanding production values. Houdini was written and directed by magic buff Pen Denshem, who also produced the 1979 documentary, Houdini Never Died. You can read my full review/overview of the movie HERE.

Houdini was released on VHS by Warner Home Video in 2000. This marks its first appearance on DVD.

Thanks to MSW for the tip.


  1. Thanks for the heads up John. Schaech also did a great job in the Tom Hanks film That Thing You Do!

  2. This is great - I've never seen it.

  3. One of my favorite movies of all time. I'm so thankful I can now watch it. I taped it when it was in TV back when I was in HS. I am a huge Houdini fan and this is very much welcomed to my collection :)
