Harry Houdini

Harry Houdini (March 24, 1874 Budapest-October 31, 1926 Detroit) also known as Erik Weisz, Ehrich Weiss or Harry Weiss was an American pilot, historian, stunt performer, actor, magician, escapology and film producer.

Houdini's career began in the late 19th century and he became known for his sensational escape acts that often involved being chained, handcuffed and submerged underwater. He also performed daring stunts, such as suspended straitjacket escapes, and was known to perform them while hanging outside buildings.

Apart from his stage performances, Houdini was also a silent film actor and producer, appearing in several movies including "The Master Mystery" and "Haldane of the Secret Service". He was also a vocal critic of spiritualism and mediums, and used his knowledge of illusions to expose fraudulent practices in the industry.

Houdini, who was an avid aviation enthusiast, even purchased his own plane and became the first person to complete a controlled powered flight in Australia in 1910. He also served as the president of the Society of American Magicians and authored several books on magic, including "The Unmasking of Robert Houdin".

Houdini's death in 1926 was widely attributed to complications from a ruptured appendix, though there have been numerous theories and conspiracy theories regarding his untimely demise. Despite his passing, his legacy continues to inspire generations of magicians and performers.
