The Great Houdinis on Talking Pictures this week

The rarely shown 1976 TV biopic The Great Houdinis is airing on Talking Pictures TV in the UK this week. It was shown yesterday and will repeat Thursday night, Nov. 29 at midnight (technically Friday).

The Great Houdinis sports a stellar cast that includes Paul Michale Glaser, Sally Struthers, Ruth Gordon, Peter Cushing, Bill Bixby, Viviane Vance, and Adrienne Barbeau. I'm a big fan of this biopic, despite the liberties it takes. It first aired on October 8, 1976 on ABC.

Thanks to Karl Bartoni for the heads up.

  1. Coincidentally, Sally was visiting my dear friends across the hall just a few weeks ago, but alas, I didn't get to meet her. Hoping for another time!
