Harry Houdini produced and starred in this first film for his new Houdini Pictures Corporation. Houdini plays a man who has been frozen in an Arctic block of ice for 100 years. Once he is thawed out, Houdini spends the rest of the film trying to solve the problems faced by the descendants of his old friends and lost loves.
The most famous sequence in the film involves Houdini's near-plunge over Niagara Falls.
This was the first movie made by Houdini Pictures Corporation after it was formed in 1921.
