In one of magic history's rarest events, a private collector auctioned off the largest collection of personally-owned Harry Houdini artifacts and memorabilia, providing an unprecedented peek behind the curtain at the world's great showman and magician.
In a feature-length special, hosted by renowned magician Lance Burton, we explore the life and magic of the great escape artist through his most prized possessions.
The Chinese Water Torture Cell, the Milkcan, his straitjackets and handcuffs, and lock-picks that were key to his handcuff escapes, revealed to the public for the first time.
We also unlock secrets of the man - brash showman, fierce competitor, loyal son and husband. With expert commentary, including a great-nephew and the last surviving member of his magic troop.
