What you are about to see are the introduction and preparations for Doug’s Grand Finale of Houdini’s “Water Torture Cell!” After another brief introduction by Gene Kelly and a Houdini history montage, Doug is introduced to a nervous crowd. The suspense is truly over whelming, and there is definitely a “will he or won’t he” feeling throughout the proceedings! Hey, even Gene Kelly seems nervous.
Rather than adding my own commentary, I’m going to let you look at these images and travel back to that fateful night forty-two years ago. The moment is at hand. How long can you hold your breath?
