Memories - in 1950 -Jr. High English - we had to read a book and cast a movie - I read a Scholastic Book, Bio. of Houdini - Cast Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh as The Houdini's - few years later, out comes the "Houdini" Movie with TC & JL _ OOOOOOOOOOOOOH , Also now have an autographed Photo of Tony. Did you know, Bill Larson, (Magic Castle) was in it? Just, thoughts and Memories. RR

I'm from Bangladesh. Unfortunately, I don't think it's likely that I'll find the book here.
