Actor Tony Curtis as Houdini

I have admired Tony Curtis for years and his recent death is a time to reflect on his very full life.

He appeared in many great films including the comedy that the American Film Institute said was the greatest comedy of the 20th century – Some like it Hot with Marilyn Monroe. This film is a laugh riot that is worth checking out again.

As  kid I remember really enjoying his excellent performance in the film Houdini, about the life of the great magician and escape artist. The newspaper mentioned a dozen of his movies, but neglected the one that had a huge impact on my life as an entertainer. Funny how some things seem important to different people.

Seeing the great Houdini come to life in that movie was fascinating. They really captured the life of the 1920’s and vaudeville.  Houdini was world famous as he captured the public’s imagination with his daring escapes and can-do spirit.

When you need entertainment for a special event or party consider a comedy magician in Minneapolis,
