Today marks the 70th anniversary of the release of the Paramount's classic biopic HOUDINI starring Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh. Seeing this move at age 10 is what ignited my interest in Houdini, and I know I'm not alone in this. It's a magical movie that inspired more than one generation. I still love it. That's why I'm going to devote this entire week to Houdini '53.
Today I'm sending you back to the beginning, the premiere at the Des Moines Theater in Des Moines, Iowa, on June 25, 1953. Just click the image below to see the show!
I've got my poster out and will be watching it tonight. How about you?
