The Great Houdinis on KMBC

Here's an ad for the TV biopic The Great Houdinis on KMBC-TV in Kansas City. I'm not sure of the date of this ad, but considering the title is still plural, it could be for the original October 1976 airing. The movie became The Great Houdini after its initial showing.

While one can find various TV Guide ads for the Tony Curtis movie, ads for The Great Houdinis are less common. This one I've never seen before, so I thought it was worth the share.

This image come from the Pintrest page belonging to Blue Topaz which is devoted to all things related to Starsky & Hutch.



  1. I have an unrelated question.........who owns, or does anyone own, the legal rights to the Houdini name?

    1. I don't believe anyone owns the Houdini name. There is family on both Bess and his brother's side, but no official Houdini estate.

  2. Thats a shame really. The familes should be able to benefit in some way.
