TV miniseries about the magician Harry Houdini. Academy Award-winner Adrien Brody plays the famous magician Harry Houdini, portraying his rise to fame and examining the life behind the magic tricks. Named Eric Weiss at birth, he transformed himself in to 'The Great Houdini' astounding the world with his tricks and illusions before evolving into a master escapologist. Along his path to notoriety Houdini meets a variety of royals and celebrities, visiting various Presidents of the US and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (David Calder). His fame takes him into the secret world of espionage and later Houdini must once again evolve and adapt to the changing modern world when new technologies threaten his act.

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region r or region free DVD player in order to play. His ability to escape from handcuffs, straitjackets, and water tanks is legendary — breaking the shackles of his past proved more challenging.   Academy Award winner Adrien Brody (The Pianist) and Kristen Connolly (TVs House of Cards) star in this epic mini-series which follows the world-renowned master of escape’s transformation from immigrant into the world’s first superstar. Driven, disciplined, and actively chasing the American Dream, Houdini constantly pushed his physical limits to accomplish feats of strength that amazed audiences in an age of spectacle. And though they saw what he wanted them to see, his reality was more elusive than his escapes.
