Houdini in Memphis

Our great friend Fred Pittella is vacationing in Memphis, Tennessee, but he just can't seem to get away from Houdini! Here's a pic Fred sent me of a certian star on their Walk of Fame.

Memphis is home to a 1927 Orpheum theatre which did feature vaudeville in its day. While it was built too late to see Houdini perform, Harry did appear in Memphis in October 1899 at the "Grand Opera House" which originally stood on the site (below).

Thanks Fred!
