The Great Harry Houdini Was Born This Day 143-Years Ago; March 24, 1874 In Budapest.
Still the best known magician and illusionist of all time.
Quite the guy.
Was an aviator too, THOUGH the claim (repeated in the above video) that he was the first to fly a plane in Australia is FALSE.
He died, in Detroit, in 1926 aged 52.
