Houdini

I was doing research on Houdini for work and I discovered that he was the first movie hero to battle a robot. Back in the early days of cinema, he made a few serials starring himself as himself.

Then I happened across this great poster for the French release of the movie.



And the American poster for chapter 8:



Houdini has been an interest/obsession of mine since early grade school. How did I miss this? I knew about the serials, but not the robot!

Someone should release these on DVD.

Edited to add:

They have it at Scarecrow. I will watch it soon!
