You display two small black boxes, one of which is marked with the skull-and-crossbones and a DANGER warning. You will re-create an astounding Houdini escape trick in miniature.
A likeness of the manacled escape artist is placed into the plain box. After a few seconds the box is opened. Harry is gone ! Only the shackles remain.. Where has he gone? The fun begins when the spectator surmises that he is in the other box.. He or she opens the marked box and BAN G!!! – It explodes but no magician is inside. Produce the Houdini card from your pocket (or elsewhere) .
