I had a chance to watch part one of the new History Channel Documentary on Harry Houdini called, "Houdini".  It stars Adrien Brody as Harry and goes into his life as a performer, also his chidhood and life with his wife Bess.   I have never read or have seen anything on the life of Houdini but found what I've heard interesting. I have seen some archival footage of his escapes and have heard about some of what he did.  The one thing I did not know and no clue if this is true but they said that he was recruited by the secret service to be a spy.  That element adds a different side to his life that I'm curious to see where it goes in part 2. The story was up and down but overall I thought it was for the time History channel is running it a decent documentary. I will be watching Part 2, will you?
