Interesting web episode of "The Ghost Hours" has an animated Houdini that uses a recording of Houdini's actual voice. You can see it at http://GhostHours.com

Was that the style back then? When performing to talk really slowly and accentuate every word so much?

Back when Houdini performed you had to talk that way due to the lack of sound systems. The performer had to speak loud enough and with enough enunciation that the last row could still understand what he said.
