I am not 100% sure if this is right but I think I remember reading about the stunt Houdini did. Are you referring to the being sealed in an air tight container and put under sand to prove he could not get any air? Was this one that he started doing after seeing another performer doing this but claiming some "special" abilities and going in to a trance etc etc? I'm foggy on the details. But I think I remember reading that Houdini revealed how he did it and challenge the other performer? I think I remember some "one up man-ship" that included the other performer being lowered into a river? Or at least setting that up. Was there a bell that was rung but "not by him" but was by one of his "spirit guides"?

Anyone name some names and details?

Picked up three reports of this "Stunt" back in LA from local agents. These will be shown at UKEA and should explain a lot regarding this weak stunt.

Everyone is incredibly critical of peoole who put up video of escapes . Then the critics don't want to put up video of their own stuff. Stop being so critical and give feedback, not insults and derision.

Isn't self on a pedestal a form of vanity or maybe a desperate plea of hey look at me mummy. Sadly with pic phones and Internet source everyone's a David Bailey and self promotion is rife. Sadly self worth is best sought from others who think you are worthy of it. Go back ten years and see that credit was earnt not manufactured so ones true values were shown, not self promoted BS. The Internet is not the be all and end all for entertainers and I know many who would not barge pole it,,, like most forms of info it's wide open to abuse and a users.

I think that Cliff may mean the stunt that was performed twice at Halloween over the past few years NOT the stunt where Houdini proved another performer to be a fake and a liar?
