New fabled film footage of a lost Harry Houdini film to be released soon. Deadline ran this interesting article:

"This much-sought-after 1919 film is a complete print of which only recently was brought to TCM for restoration — features the escape artist and legendary illusionist in one of his few starring roles.

In "The Grim Game," Houdini plays Harvey Hanford, a young man who is framed for murder. As Hanford escapes from the police and goes after the gang of men who framed him, the movie offers numerous opportunities for Houdini to display his own skills as an escape artist, illusionist and stuntman. Among the most remarkable sequences is a mid-air collision between two airplanes that was a real accident caught on film and used in the story."

Some high altitude action footage from the pre Bond, Indiana Jones era...

Looks interesting!
