According to his website, this chap is a relative of Harry Houdini. Anyone know anything more about him?

Not sure about this guy- go to the "Houdini escapes" page and scroll to the bottom right corner. See the USD SJ pic with the burning rope? Isn't that actually Ace Starry? Hmmmmm.........

The photo with the model and the headchopper is right out of the Owens Magic Catalog with a different face pasted on it.

Hi Tim,

Not sure who he is or even if he has permission to use The Magic Castle's photo and name on his website in the deceiving manner in which it's displayed. The picture is the AMA's Magic Castle, not the castle in Germany. But you knew that....

Hay, best wishes and blessings to you and Sue-Ann!

I sense Hanky Panky if Franky is Harry.
"What's your drug?" she asked. "Hope" he said, "The most addicting one of all."

Uhm... yeah... this cat is a bit creepy. That IS indeed a picture of Ace Starry escaping from the SJ with the burning rope! But if you go to the pic on Franky's site and right click for properties, he even renamed it "frankyburning.jpg"... but it's definitely 100% Ace Starry. Bewteen THAT and the blatent cut and paste of his head on the Owens Catelog pic... well... what more can I say than... ugh.

Houdini is either applauding feverishly from the grave.... or flailing violently trying to escape from the beyond to smack this guy upside the head!

Well I decided to send a nice, calm, little email to him. Will see if he responds and will keep you updated if and when he responds.

Hey wolf can you post a copy of the email here? I would be interested to see what you said to him.

Of course he could well have done all these things but not got any pictures! In which case that was a bit dumb! I try and get pictures of most of my stuff – so I can use them later if I need to.

Any way – it would be interesting to see what he says.

Thanks Dave

I will post what I have sent him. Not harsh stuff but very warning, cautious type one. Hold on...

Good Day to you Franky

I would like to ask a few personal questions if possible. Is there a reason for using a picture from the Owen's Magic catalogue to which you have cut and pasted your head on? Ans Does Ace Starry know that you have a picture of him on your sight which you have named frankyburning.jpg? Does the Magic castle know that you have pics on your site of the castle? I believe that they have certain rights which disallow you to use their picture. If not, I am sure you will be hearing from them soon.

Regards
Wolflock

It's got to be a hoax. On his .pdf file he has this to say about himself...

In 1992 magicians everywhere were stunned to see a "street magician" perform in his own way and become the ‘magicians’ magician’ and hit the TV headlines. A total unknown Franky Houdini thereafter became Australia’s Only fulltime leading Magician, Comedian and Escape Artist.

I want to go see him live. Apparentley he is just a head, no body and he sticks his head to all different bodies. I think that would make escapes a piece of cake. He can naw through any rope or chain with his adamantium teeth.

I wish him luck with his Chinese water torture cell.

As a matter of fact that is a picture of me. I just wrote Franky's web designers a nasty little note.
