The Grim Game turns 100

Today marks the 100th anniversary of the release of The Grim Game at the B.S. Moss' Broadway Theater in New York City. This was an exclusive two-week engagement of the film with Houdini making a personal appearance at each showing. The movie would go into wide release in October.

So to celebrate The Grim Game, here's a look at Harry Houdini...ACTOR! Also a list of notable Grim Game posts that have appeared here on WILD ABOUT HARRY over the years.

    1. Maybe we can talk TCM into releasing a DVD for the 100th anniversary of its wide release in October? :)
