  5. The very moment of contact (33 sec) with Houdini at

    See Magician-Escape Artist Dorothy Dietrich reach Houdini. 2020 seance on day of his death-Halloween.

    On, in 2020, legendary magician, escape artist, Houdini expert, Dorothy Dietrich, curator of Scranton's Houdini Museum, the Only Building in the World totally devoted to Houdini, contacted Houdini on the 94th anniversary of his death, October 31, 1926, Halloween. See it as it happened in this quick video at that very moment. This Zoom event is believed to be the largest Houdini Seance in history there.

    All of Dorothy Dietrich's seances have and will remain free in keeping with the wishes of Harry Houdini's wife Beatrice "Bess" Houdini who was reported in the Jan 10, 1929 of The New York Times to state that all Houdini Seances should be free from "monetary gain".

    This clearly spontaneous jumping across the table of Houdini's printing block that he owned and would have handled many times in real life happened as Dorothy Dietrich was discussing how Houdini has been falsely been portrayed as dying in an escape, The Houdini Water Torture Cell, which Houdini would have hated.

    Interestingly on the Houdini Seance she held on the 50th anniversary of his death, at New York City's Magic Towne House, as everyone in the room were gathered for several minutes around the seance table, at the other end of the room a picture fell from the wall and shattered. It was a picture of the very same Water Torture Cell, that many due to the Tony Curtis movie, believe Houdini died in as a result of a failed escape.
