Houdini now a permanent resident of Catalina Island

The Catalina Island Museum has shared a first look at a new display devoted to Houdini's Terror Island which is now part of their permanent exhibition on Catalina history. Houdini filmed a large part of the movie on the island in late 1919.

You'll note the display features a video screen which plays the overboard box escape from the film. This footage is missing from the existing movie. It was uncovered last year by our friend Joe Notaro and it not available to view anywhere else. So Houdini fans who visit the island get a rare treat!

On May 17, the Catalina Island Museum will host a special 100th Anniversary screening Houdini's The Grim Game in their outdoor amphitheater with live musical accompaniment by Michael Mortilla. Click for details.
