A Chance to Escape
21 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

This film from Harry Houdini's film studio is listed as an early science fiction film. I guess it is. Harry is discovered in a chunk of ice by a couple of explorers. They thaw him out and he ends up back in his original environs, only a hundred years later (wasn't there a TV show called "The Second Hundred Years?). From this point on, he is forced to live in a world where all he knew, including the love of his life, has past him by. He believes a young woman is the person he loved, but he is waylaid by the realities of his position, trying to romance a girl who has made other commitments, and being harassed by her lover and others who think he is crazy. The problem is that the plot elements are weak at best. There is little verisimilitude anywhere. Also, looking at old Harry, he wasn't exactly a guy off the cover of GQ. Still, it was really interesting to see him in film, one of those acclaimed characters of history. There are some rather interesting theological speculations that are really contrived. We know that Houdini's connections to Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle are intriguing. Worth a look as a curiosity.
