Included are reviews of the U.S. broadcast (History) version and the Extended DVD (Lionsgate) version, as well as something entirely new; a never before published history of the production with facts and behind-the-scenes images that you will not find anywhere online (what I show on page 9 is especially awesome). I've also packed it with photos from the miniseries and some uncommon shots of the real Harry. Here's the official description:
In 2014 the HISTORY channel aired a new biopic about the world’s most famous magician and escape artist, Harry Houdini. Written by Nicholas Meyer and starring Adrien Brody, it promised to tell the “cradle to grave” story of Houdini’s amazing career. But what was fact and what was fiction? Was Houdini really a spy? Did he have an affair with Lady Butler? In this illustrated primer, Houdini historian and blogger John Cox (www.wildabouthoudini.com) takes up the challenge and separates Fact from Fiction in the HOUDINI miniseries. Also included is a history of the production, reviews, and rare photos of the real Houdini in action.
You can buy Fact Checking HOUDINI The Miniseries on Amazon.com (U.S.), Amazon.co.uk (UK), or direct from CreateSpace.
