Very surprised that no one has brought up the fact that Harry Houdini died on this day 31 Oct 1926. Shame on you magicians :x

There is a new historical book out:

The Man Who Killed Houdini (Paperback) by Don Bell

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... 2?v=glance

AND ...

apparently Guy Pierce (from Memento) is supposed to be playing Houdini in a semi-biographical drama about a part of Houdini's life:

A bit late but an interesting 2 hr deal on Houdini was on the History channel, with Copperfield buying stuff from a Houdini action---Great show
It was on from 8pm -10pm ET, hope they have it on again, if they do I'll let you know
