The capital of Russia at the time of Houdini's visit was St Petersburg, not Moscow. Very doubtful he gave a performance to the Royal Family in Moscow. See more »

The Great Houdini
4 September 2014 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

As a child, I saw a movie about Houdini played by Tony Curtis (1953) and wanted to know more about this extraordinary fellow who seemed to have become not only a legend but immortal. I read everything that was written about him.

I waited a long time to see a new Hollywood feature of the Great Houdini and was very disappointed by this work. The casting was excellent and the special effects were good enough but the script needed much more work and why have Mr Brody narrate the entire movie which was annoying and unnecessary.

Well I guess I will have to wait many more years for Hollywood to make a decent movie about this most extraordinary fellow. Too bad!
