Houdini in Hollywood and Beyond

Tomorrow, October 8, I will be giving a special Houdini in Hollywood talk at the Hollywood Heritage Museum. All this week the museum has on display rare Houdini memorabilia from my own collection as well handcuffs from the collection of Joe Fox.

But tomorrow we will have on display a very special item from the collection of our good friend, Mark Willoughby. Mark has never shown this item before, and it's a jaw dropper! I'm not going to tell you what it is -- at least not until after the event -- and it will ONLY appear for this one night before it goes back to the great Beyond.

So if you want to see a rare artifact from Houdini's film career, get a ticket to "Houdini in Hollywood" via brownpapertickets. Tickets can also be purchased at the door.

The Hollywood Heritage Museum is located at 2100 North Highland Avenue, Hollywood, CA 90068, directly across from the Hollywood Bowl (enter on Odin St.). Parking is plentiful and free. Phone is (323)-874-2276. For more visit hollywoodheritage.org.

UPDATE: When Houdini returned to Hollywood.


  1. Good luck for tomorrow. Wish I was there to see all the Houdini goodies and hear your talk. But we have the next best thing here. Thanks.

    1. Thanks Narinder. Wish you could be there, but I will post lots of pics.

  2. Knock em dead John! Those of us on the East Coast await your report on this event.

    1. I really think it could not have gone better. Every aspect clicked. Standing room only. Think everyone really enjoyed it. Hope to at least have some pics up in a few days. But I've taken a lot of work off for this, so the next few days I'm going to be very busy.
