frantic pace,but very repetitive
14 July 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

after having just watched this movie starring harry Houdini,i gotta say,i have mixed feelings about it.on the one hand, the pace is very frantic,so the movie is not boring,in that regard.however,the movie is very repetitive,with Houdini and his co-stars doing a lot of the same things over and over again.unfortunately,2 reels out of 7 are lost,so instead of reels 3 and 4,there is a brief explanatory text to bridge the gap.if you're not a silent film buff,you probably would not enjoy this particular movie.but if you are,i think it's worth having for the novelty alone.if you haven't been exposed to silent movies,this is probably not the one you should watch first.i would recommend Nosferatu(1922)as a starting point.
