Inside Magic Favorites Dorothy Dietrich and Dick Brookz will be traveling west to lead tour of Hollywood Houdini Sites on what would have been the great magician’s 141st Birthday, March 24.
Ms. Dietrich and Mr. Brookz recently uncovered Houdini’s long lost film The Grim Game are in Hollywood as special guests of Turner Classic Movies to introduce the world premiere of the film.
Those in the know consider The Grim Game the best of Houdini’s five feature films but it has not been seen by the public for more than 96 years. Thanks to Ms. Dietrich and Mr. Brookz, the film will be featured as part of the finale of the TCM Film Festival, March 29.
After the Hollywood showing, it will be exhibited at The Directors Guild in New York City and then in Scranton, Pennsylvania – the home of the incredible Houdini Museum. Turner Classic Movies intends to broadcast the film on their cable channel later in the year.
The Hollywood tour will begin on March 24 at 10 AM in front of the Hollywood Heritage Museum at 2100 Highland Ave. The museum was once part of the Famous Players-Lasky Studio where Houdini made The Grim Game. Dorothy Dietrich will perform magic for those in attendance and then she and Mr. Brookz will join John Cox for a private Hollywood tour. Mr. Cox is the host of the most important Houdini website in the universe, Wild About Harry.
The Houdini Museum has the largest and only continuing traveling exhibit on Houdini, “Houdini Road Show,” that has finally all come back from being on display at the Seminole Coconut Creek Casino in West Palm Beach.
Ms. Dietrich and Mr. Dick Brookz are also currently starring in Psychic Theater’s Haunted Seance! The show is the longest running performance of its kind in history – more than 10 years at the Houdini Museum Theater.
