There is much speculation about the death of Houdini. Many of the detail remain mysterious. I hope you enjoy this look into the possibilities.
A special thanks to Mike Chang of SixPackShortcuts for letting me punch him in the gut as hard as I could. Check his stuff out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eilw4-NNlEw
Did I mention HE LET ME PUNCH HIM AS HARD AS I COULD?
Music "A little discomfort, a whole lot of Freedom", and "Piano Improvisation" by A Shell In The Pit.
You know Gordon's music by now. It's all good.
I shot the punch with a Phantom MIRO LC320S made by Vision Research:
With thanks to Houdini Historian

A big thank you to Ben Eells who responded to my call for help on Facebook and spent both a Saturday and a Sunday to shoot footage of Houdini's grave for us. He originally went on Saturday but the graveyard was closed for the Sabbath. I didn't know that! I'm getting Smarter Every Day I guess.

Instead of saving for my kids' college, I make videos using the money I would have saved.
The thought is it will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for their education. Until then if you appreciate what you've learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please SHARE THE VIDEO!
