Snippets 101 

Houdini-Gresham 

Houdini closed Bucharest, Roumania, in the spring of 1914 and hurried back home to open his second season at Hammerstein’s Victoria. This time he featured “The Double-fold Death Defying Mystery, in which Houdini is Locked in an Air-Tight Galvanized Can Filled with Water, which in turn is Securely Locked Up Inside of a Hermitically Sealed Iron-Bound Wooden Chest. Failure to Escape Means Death by Drowning.” (182)
