I tried bringing up earlier - doesn't seem to be any interest on this forum, which is quite surprising.

Were you expecting a surprise party for Houdin?

No - just didn't think I could make it 65 and 1/2 years for the bicentennial of his death!

Dear Steve V,

The name of the gentleman in question was Jean Eugne Robert-Houdin, not Robert Houdin.

Hence I suggest we wish Jean Eugne or Mr Robert-Houdin a Happy Birthday. ;)

Regards,
