"You know what the lowest form of life is?"

Here's a short clip from the 1998 film Houdini. Here Harry (Johnathon Schaech) articulates his stance on Spiritualism. It's much more extreme than Houdini's actual position, and he also gets the date of his mother's death wrong (it was July 17, not the 16th). Still, I like how this movie took a dramatic timeout to allow a lecture from Houdini on "the lowest form of life."

Houdini recently became available on DVD via the Warner Archive Collection. Read my full review of the movie HERE.
