"Houdini" is a 1953 biographical film about the life of the magician and escapologist Harry Houdini. It was made by Paramount Pictures, directed by George Marshall and produced by George Pal from a screenplay by Philip Yordan, based on the book "Houdini" by Harold Kellock. The music score was by Roy Webb and the cinematography by Ernest Laszlo. The art direction was by Albert Nozaki and Hal Pereira and the costume design by Edith Head.


The film details a highly fictional account of Harry Houdini's life. The film follows his most dangerous stunts and magic tricks along with his love Bess Houdini.

The death of the magician is depicted in the film as a failure to escape the Chinese Water Torture Cell; in real life Houdini died of peritonitis due to being punched in the stomach.
