The Handcuff King, King of Pop, and Heavyweight Champ walk into a theater...

Here's a nice video from Michael and Jessica of The Grimm Life Collective. Is this our first Houdini-Michael Jackson connection? I think so! Enjoy.

I appreciate this YouTuber's acknowledgment that there is a discrepancy in the date of the Jess Willard encounter. While every book says November 30, I've proposed it was actually November 29 (and made my case HERE). Happy to see I've broken through.

It worth noting that Houdini played this Los Angeles Orpheum again in 1923. No heavyweight champ takedowns that time, but I'm sure it was another...thriller.

Thanks to Carl Morano for the alert.
