Harry Houdini (1874-1926)
Few performers have ever captured the public imagination like Harry Houdini. From his breakthrough in 1899 to his death in 1926, Houdini was one of the world's most popular entertainers, a true star of stage and screen. Time and again, his escapes from seemingly impossible predicaments thrilled audiences, who found in him a metaphor for their own lives, an affirmation of the human capacity to overcome adversity. Escapism in both senses of the word. But while nearly everyone is familiar with Houdini's stage persona, his little-known personal life is equally revealing. Taken as a whole, the public and private views make "The Elusive American" a uniquely powerful window on his times.
His love of America was such that he always claimed Appleton, Wisconsin, as his birthplace. But the man known as Houdini was actually born Ehrich Weiss in Budapest, Hungary. He would not arrive in Wisconsin until four years later, when he, his mother Cecelia, and four brothers joined his father, who had become rabbi of a small Reform congregation there. Although an educated man, Herman Mayer Weiss (Weisz was changed to Weiss courtesy of immigration officials) was not destined for success in America. His life-long struggle to provide for his family would make a lasting impression on his son "Ehrie," who was forced to work from an early age to help make ends meet. Still, the boy was drawn to performing, making his debut in a neighborhood circus as the nine year old trapeze artist, "Ehrich, The Prince of the Air."

(11 K'an (Corn) / 12 Uo - 24/260 - Houdini, Harry
American magician known for his escapes from chains, handcuffs, straitjackets, and padlocked containers. Houdini, Harry magic . He was able to free himself from handcuffs, ropes, locked trunks, and many types of bonds. Houdini attributed his magic to natural, physical effects and explained how many of his tricks were performed. His writings include Miracle Mongers and Their Methods (1920) and A Magician Among the Spirits (1924). Theater and Film, "The Great Houdini" gains wide publicity by executing an escape from London's Scotland Yard, becomes a main attraction at London's Alhambra Theatre, and begins a 4-year tour of the Continent. U.S. escape artist Ehrich Weiss, 26, has adopted the name Houdini from the French magician Jean Eugene Robert-Houdin; having studied Robert-Houdin's work, his book The Unmasking of Robert-Houdin in 1908 will show that the Frenchman's dexterity was much exaggerated, and he will far surpass Robert-Houdin's reputation with feats such as having himself shackled in irons, locked into a roped and weighted box, dropped overboard from a boat, and emerging with a smile before baffled audiences.

Harry Houdini (1874-1926)
(b. Erik Weisz, then Ehrich Weiss) On March 18, 1910 whilst on a visit to Australia and in a Voisin biplane (purchased for US$5,000 in Hamburg, Germany prior to the trip - see Hamburg images below), Harry Houdini made the first controlled , powered flight of an airplane in Australia , at Digger's Rest in Victoria, Australia. The magic of flight, he later wrote, was in the "glorious thrill" of first adventure, and "not in minor modification which is perpetual in any art."
Harry Houdini, The Argus You may wish to download a 500 pixel or 1000 pixel version of the full image at right showing Houdini in the cockpit of the Voisin. Houdini, as well as being the first to make a controlled powered flight in Australia, also seems to be the first aviator here to have documented the event(s) on film. Houdini flies his Voisin Biplane in Sydney*, Australia, 1910 *Most probably at Rosehill Racecourse Download Movie 1 Source : "Bob King's : Houdini Tribute"

An alternate edit has been created by Carroll Gray which, although showing less of Houdini actually flying, does show an extended opening sequence of Houdini settling himself into the Voisin. Download Movie 2 Source : "Carroll Gray's : Pioneer Aviators Web Site"
