Houdini: 1 film(s)
Houdini


Houdini
George Marshall | USA | 1953 | 106mm
This special screening is presented in memory of the late Tony Curtis, and in conjunction with the exhibition, Houdini: Art and Magic, on view at The Jewish Museum. The story of the great magician and escape artist, Harry Houdini, comes to life in this colorful drama starring the late great Tony Curtis as Houdini, and the irresistible Janet Leigh as his faithful wife, Bess. From Houdini’s early days as Erich Weiss, a Jewish boy practicing on safes in Brooklyn, to his renowned death-defying escapes, this film is a rare treat. Screening will be followed by a performance by contemporary magical entertainer, Josh Rand.
