Houdini in THE GRIM GAME movie



Houdini stars as Harvey Hanford, a young journalist who is framed for the murder of his uncle. A memorable scene shows Houdini's character suspended by a rope between two flying airplanes. The planes actually collided, and the accident was made part of the film. Though the studio hinted that it was Houdini making a real-life escape from danger, it was in reality stuntman Bob Kennedy.
