Houdini answers your questions (tomorrow)

In 1925 The Pittsburgh Press ran a series of articles in which Houdini answered readers questions. Houdini actually came into the newsroom every day at 10 AM to do so. Some of his answers were extremely revealing, yet I've never seen them quoted in any book. So to celebrate Houdini's other birthday tomorrow, I'll share some select Q&A exchanges along with a photo I've never seen before. I think you'll enjoy.


  1. Sort of the progenitor of the celebrity question and answer appearance that Cary Grant did later in life and what Adrienne Barbeau is scheduled for.

  2. It never ceases to amaze me how, all these decades later, we're still finding out new stuff about HH. Well done.
