The Master Mystery 6-sheet restored

In April came news that David Haversat of David Haversat Magic had uncovered a hitherto unknown 6-sheet poster for Houdini's silent serial The Master Mystery. Now David gives us a first look at the fully restored poster below. A beauty!

The poster was found among a number of antiquities and other silent film posters in Canada. It's for Episode 14 ("The Tangled Web"), which was the second to last episode of the 1918-19 serial that featured Houdini and what is said to be cinema's first robot.

Thank you David.



  1. Can his collection be viewed somewhere?

    1. That I don't know. But you can see some poster images at his website (link in story).
