Wrapped in chains and encased in a crate, magician Harry Houdini was dropped into New York's icy East River. Horrified onlookers watched him emerge, unharmed, less than 60 second later. Easily the world's most famous escape artist, Houdini mesmerized audiences with astonishing acts of magic like the Water Torture Cell. A circus performer turned gifted artist, Houdini confronted humanity's greatest fears: entrapment, pain, and death.

Houdini was everything -Like this show!

Comments about PBS American Experience: Houdini (2011) DVD:

What child-or "adult" doesn't wish that they can do and be magic? That a wish is a dream that comes true at the snap of your fingers or a wave of your wand? Houdini made his audience believe, if only for the length of a trick or a show, that we can make our our dreams come true by ourselves. Houdini was the American dream in one pair of pants. He turned himself into the greatest magician in history, starting in poverty with nothing to look forward to, and ending in legend and a life story that is told and dreamt about by generations now and forever. "Abracadabra!"
