Peter-- this Houdini footage, especially the first one, is simply amazing. When one keeps in mind that some of it is well over 100 years old it becomes a revelation. Just watching the expression on the vast number of people watching certainly explains the way in winch he captured the incredulity, and fear of all. I wonder if he would have the same allure today? I doubt it. It seems Houdini was a product of his time. But still, he is no less amazing. I've seem much Houdini footage over the years. But nothing is so vivid and overwhelming as all this footage. Thank you for this rare treat. Best, Spencer
