Schmaltzy Melodrama but worth a look! On DVD
8 December 2006 | by (Everett , Washington) – See all my reviews

I've been a Houdini fan since I was a kid, so when I ran across this movie on VHS I bought it. This is the story of a man frozen in time and coming to life to find himself finding his soul-mate about to marry a man after her money. He must convince her that she's making a mistake and show the fiancé up for the villain he is. During the course of the movie, Houdini shows us some of the escapes he was famous for.

While I agree with the comments that this movie is overly melodramatic, most of the silents of that era were. Yes, it's got all the overly-exaggerated gestures and wide-eyed looks.

In spite of this, I watched with fascination as Houdini, the man who help audiences in the palm of his hand, hammed it up through this movie. A great actor, he's not. But for most of us, it's the only chance we'll ever have to see the Great Houdini. Most magicians can out-perform him now, but in his heyday, he was the one and only.

As Houdini's only appearance on DVD, you can find this rare gem at Amazon, or Deep Discount DVD.
