Really good made for TV movie
14 July 2001 | by (Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this since 1987, but just the fact that I remember it so fondly means that it had an impression on me. This was an entertaining, finely crafted movie that shows how Houdini picked up on magic during his teen years. This is a good companion piece to the other TV film, "Young Sherlock Holmes". Both are fun and well worth watching. I only wish this one was available on video.
