San Fransisco suspended straitjacket anniversary

Last year, I completely overlooked the centennial of Houdini's suspended straitjacket escape in San Francisco on March 19, 1923. So on this 101st anniversary, I'm sharing rare film of this escape on my Patreon. As far as I know, this footage has never appeared elsewhere.

The Hearst Building building still stands today on the corner of 3rd and Market Street. Yes, Houdini hung here!
