Norm and I were talking, and wondered...

How come nobody's ever done a bio of Hardeen?

Anybody?

Hardeen Houdini-- how could you not know that!??

check with the houdini musesam in scraton Pa (not far from where I live)

they should be able to tell you any thing you want to know about him.

I seem to recall seeing some writings about him but not sure if it was a full bio.

hope that helps

It's a real shame no one has done this. I threw the idea out to Jim Steinmeyer once. He didn't bite.

LOL! No wonder why there isn't a book about Theo. He can't even find a friend on Face book. He should try Faceless Book.

I think it's purely a $$ game. Houdini sells, even today. Hence old D B Houdinii from the other topic. Hardeen was just HH's brother. Some would buy it, but I'm sure if you were to go to the trouble of producing a book one on HH himself would sell more.

Personally I'd love to know more about him. A book in the style of Patrick's Houdini:The Key (my #1 escape related perchase not including the Lambert) would be awesome.

Let's put this puppy to rest. Here's the answer.

Even when Hardeen wrote a book near the end of his life, he wrote it about Houdini. Smile

...a good example of the difference between the ability to sell something, and the real value of it.
