Harry Houdini

Today is Harry Handcuff Houdini's the great magician and escape artist's  137th birthday.   I love reading about him and if I had lived back when he was alive I would have loved to be his apprentice.  anyone else love Houdini?
  Here is  link to  the Wikipedia article on him.  Ironically the last remaining member of his troupe of assistants   Dorothy Young died the other day.

His wife Willamina Beatrice Houdini Known as "Bess"  was also his stage assistant .  They had no children which is very sad I think.    Houdini was Jewish Bess was Catholic. Interesting huh?
