I think it's interesting that this ad doesn't feature Houdini's image. Instead, this showcases his co-star, Q The Automaton, said to be the very first movie robot. You can't keep HIM out of your theater either, as this footage from the 2015 Los Angeles Magic History Conference proves.
I'll be marking this anniversary by watching the first few episodes tonight. Q lives!
- The Master Mystery premiered 100 years ago today
- Q reclaims his title as the first movie robot (kinda)
- Houdini stops off in Lowell
