Okay, this one is bit off the wall, but interesting. Did Houdini really believe he was a reincarnation of a German magician who died doing a buried alive stunt?

David Byron, Joseph Pecore, and Bill Goodwin have chimed in on this and helped uncover "Von Treck" (actually Friedrich von der Trenck).

I thought this one was a bit of a lark, but it's getting darn interesting. Update here:

Somewhat related to this is Houdini's casting of Jane Connelly in The Man From Beyond for her "psychic" qualities.
