I read today that Janet Leigh passed away yesterday. Janet and Tony Curtis are the ones that got me started in magic, then into collecting and finally settling in on Houdini. I have had many a happy hour with my collection because of them.

Thanks Janet,

I was sad too.
I really love that movie.When I was a kid I stayed up late to watch Houdini on the late late show.
I think it had one of the best presentations
of the broom suspension.
A few years ago I got her home address and send her my Houdini movie lobby 8x10's for her to sign,which she did and 8x10 of her self. Very nice lady.
She'll always be Mrs. Houdini of the silver srceen.
she'll be miss.
