Plot Sypnosis:

Directed by George Marshall (Destry Rides Again),Houdini traces the fascinating life of the world’s foremost illusionist and escapologist (portrayed by Tony Curtis, Some Like it Hot), from his early years working the Coney Island sideshows, where he’ll meet his future bride Bess (Janet Leigh, Psycho), to career heights performing for dignitaries and royalty across the globe.
 
Houdini’s fame would not lessen his quest for answers to life after death. His search for the answer would eventually lead to his most complex and dangerous performance.
 
Houdini, beautifully shot in Technicolor by Ernest Laszlo (Academy Award winner for Ship of Fools,1965) with costumes by the great Edith Head (winner of eight Academy Awards for Best Costume design), also stars Torin Thatcher (Witness for the Prosecution), Angela Clarke (The Seven Little Foys) and Sig Ruman (Stalag 17).
