Houdini & Daily MIrror Challenge

Houdinis great lock-picking feat at the London Hippodrome. Harry Houdini shown on stage at the London Hippodrome, having specially made cuffs locked to his wrists in the presence of representatives of some London newspapers. The cuff was allegedly made by a Birmingham blacksmith, Nathaniel Hart, who had spent five years perfecting its locks. On 17 March, In a challenge by the Daily Mirror (then called the Daily Illustrated Mirror), Houdini was manacled into the cuffs and took over an hour to escape in front of a packed theatre. There are various conspiracy theories about how Houdini managed the escape and it is possible he and the Mirror colluded together. Date: 1904
