Deals From The Dark Side - Houdini Handcuffs

Here's the full "Houdini Handcuffs" episode of Deals from the Dark Side with Steve Santini. This first aired in Canada in 2011 and on SyFy in the U.S. in 2012. A bonus is seeing the new Houdini grave bust coming fresh out of the mold.


The Houdini handcuffs sold on eBay in 2012 for $3,800. 

You can watch all the outside videos I share here on WILD ABOUT HARRY via my Linked Videos list at my YouTube channel.



  1. Those cuffs are period correct but it's a leap of faith to say they were owned by Houdini. They were apparently gimmicked for quick release by the manufacturer. HH knew how to work on cuffs to make then quick release, he didn't need to purchase them ready made from the manufacturer.

    Why did Dorothy keep referring to the Milk Can in her museum as the Water Torture Cell?

    1. I believe that was all in the editing. You do one of these shows and you are at the mercy of the editors. They'll have you say whatever they require.
