LINK: Larger than Life: Harry Houdini & Mickey Cohen

Paranormal investigator Scott Markus has a nice post on his blog What's YOUR Ghost Story? about Houdini and gangster Mickey Cohen. Scott explains:

I love the concept of taking two seemingly opposite figures in history, putting them up next to one another and then seeing what types of comparisons we can draw and what ironies might present themselves. I’m not fully trying to do that here, but I can’t keep myself from doing it entirely.

Scott touches on a lot of Houdini Los Angeles history in this delightful and original read. So click the headline to check it out What's YOUR Ghost Story?

  1. Scott has a great blog! Thanks for the heads up John! He plans to write about the Final Bess Houdini Seance next month. The photo of Bess and Ed Saint on the roof of the Knickerbocker Hotel with the workmen behind them setting up the seance scenery is incredible!
