So there is this story of how Houdini was spotted exiting a theater with an attractive red-haired showgirl. Bess got wind of it and staked out the backstage door, and when Houdini and the redhead appeared, she gave them both hell. I believe Houdini said he was just escorting her home in this rough neighborhood.
I thought this was a pretty common story and I thought it first appeared in Kellock, but for the life of me I can't find it. I feel like it's sometimes told in conjunction with the "Bessie on the knee of the Colonel" story. I've searched Kalush and Solman electronically (found Colonel story, but not this) and have scanned Silverman, Brandon, Christopher, Gresham and Weltman, but can't seem to find this anywhere. But I know I've read it!
Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Do you know which book it's in? This is for an article on my blog, but I don't want to post until I've checked my facts.
