      On page 86 he traps him self in side a jail van knowing that he would not be able to get out of it. But later when he was still inside he kissed his wife and she passed him a can opener so that he could get out.
      On page 35 he taught him self all of his majic tricks. That shows in independents because no one ever helped him learn
      On page 45
      He was offered a place at a theater and on the same day performed.
    • Houdini’s favorite room.
      This would be Houdini’s favorite room because he loved to be trapped in to a spaces ( I’m saying space because not all the things that he got locked into were rooms) that presented a challenge to get out of. Also he found that if it there was danger involved then it would make good theater or a news paper.
    • Hero Button
      Houdini should get this award because he pulls off extraordinary escapes. There is an example of this on page 109, when the author describes, how Houdini jumps in to the Detroit river when it has frozen over. The police cut a hole into the water, and from the bridge he jumps into the water with hand cuffs on and then gets swept down the river under the ice. Houdini is down their for Eight minutes. But to every one’s shock he comes back out alive! As I was saying anyone could do this with the proper training.
      The Stand Outers Award.
