One of the standout moments in Terror Island is the when Houdini's car races in front of moving train, clearing it by seeming inches. It's a breathtaking stunt. Now here's an item in the May 4, 1921 Boston Globe that confirms it was done for real.
For your breathtaking pleasure, here's that train stunt from Terror Island (from the Kino release).
To mark the 100th anniversary of Terror Island's wide release tomorrow, I will be joining Julie Perlin Lee at the Catalina Island Museum for a LIVE Stream chat on their Instagram at 11:30 am PDT.
