This time last year it was inconceivable that we would all be gathering around our television sets to watch The Grim Game, a film many Houdini fans feared they would never see. But now we are only hours away from enjoying Houdini's best film work. The Grim Game is here!
The Grim Game will air on TCM at 8:00 PM (ET)/6:00 PM (PT) and again at 11:45 PM (ET)/8:45 PM (PT). The first showing will feature the original ensemble musical score by Brane Živkovic. A second airing will feature the new piano score by Steve Sterner.
To mark the occasion, TCM and magician Michael Carbonaro (The Carbonaro Effect) will be live tweeting throughout the day, including from my talk on Houdini Among The Spirits at the Center for Inquiry in Hollywood. The hashtag is #HoudiniEffect and I'm embedding the Twitter stream below.
Enjoy the shows!
