"Houdini's Not-So-Magical Film Factory" in The Linking Ring

The April 2021 issue of The Linking Ring comntains an article by yours truly about Houdini's Film Developing Corporation, his "not-so-magical film factory." This is an updated version of the deep dive I first posted here.

I'm honored that The Linking Ring's executive editor Sammy Smith has invited me to submit occasional Houdini-related articles from WAH to his magazine. So if you have a favorite post that you'd like to see in print, please let me know!

The Linking Ring is the official magazine of the International Brotherhood of Magicians (IBM). You can join the IBM and receive the magazine via their official website.


  1. The Saga of the FDC was a great post! A wonderful deep dive you won't find in bios. HH had to lease an office in Manhattan to handle incoming clients and other paperwork required. Somebody had to work behind a desk in that place.

    1. Thanks. The version in Linking Ring is an overall improvement, I think. Definitely a better title. :)
