Interesting clip!

5 people at the same time competing who can escape fastest from a same type of SJ (quite fair don't you think?)

It's not fair at all! Everyone else throws themselves all over the furniture, Tony Curtis just stares at the chandelier, sweats a lot, and dematerializes his arm for a bit. Of course, since the film is entirely historically accurate, I just have to bite my tongue.

Thanks for the clip, though, this is grand fun.

Yours,

Paul

Yes but did you see that the one he got out of was not the one they put him in? The S/J at the very end of the clip had no arms in it. (yes go back and look)
Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.

I never noticed that before! We have the actual straight jacket (with arms) in the Houdini exhibit that I helped create in The Magic Circle headquarters in London. I have attatched a small photo.

Very entertaining video clip. Wow, Tony looked SO young then! I'll have to try that dramatic move of jumping off the stage and crash onto a dinner table....
