LUCY’S KIDNAPPED BY FLYNN AND TAKEN TO THE 1893 CHICAGO WORLD’S FAIR IN PURSUIT OF RITTENHOUSE, AND HARRY HOUDINI MAY BE THE ONLY PERSON WHO CAN SAVE HER. Lucy’s (Abigail Spencer) situation grows desperate after she’s taken captive by Flynn (Goran Visnjic) and brought to the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. In their dogged pursuit of Lucy, Wyatt (Matt Lanter) and Rufus (Malcolm Barrett) fall into a sinister trap. Also starring Sakina Jaffrey, Paterson Joseph and Claudia Doumit. Guest starring Michael Drayer, Joel Johnstone, Chad Rook and Katherine Cunningham.
In regards to Houdini, they have their history right. Houdini did perform at the 1893 Chicago's Worlds Fair early in his career. Below is a photo of Houdini with his first performing partner Jacob Hyman said to have been taken at the fair. Eerily similar to the photo of Drayer, isn't it?
Timeless photo: Sergei Bachlakov/NBC. Houdini-Hyman photo from The Magic Detective.
UPDATE: There is actually very faint writing on the Harry and Jacob photo that notes it as being Middleton's Dime Museum in Chicago, so not the Fair.
