Grim Game lantern slide sells on eBay

An original glass lantern slide for Houdini's The Grim Game sold on eBay today for $846.99. The seller didn't appear to know what this was and listed it for $6.00, describing it as "kind of cute." I'm sure they were happy with the auction results!

Joe Notaro at Harry Houdini Circumstantial Evidence has a nice look at this and other Grim Game slides HERE. For more on the history of lantern slides, check out Silent Cinema Society.
