    “vigorous self-training, to enable me to do remarkable things with my body, to make not one muscle or a group of muscles, but every muscle, a responsive worker, quick and sure...” -Houdini on one of the secrets to his success

  • Tim Shady

    Harry Houdini (born Erik Weisz in Budapest, later Ehrich Weiss or Harry Weiss; 03-24-1874 – 10-31-1926) was a Hungarian-American illusionist and stunt performer, noted for his sensational escape acts. He first attracted notice as "Harry Handcuff Houdini" on a tour of Europe, where he challenged police forces to keep him locked up. Soon he extended his repertoire to include chains, ropes slung from skyscrapers, straitjackets under water, and having to hold his breath inside a sealed milk can.
