Season 7, Episode 4, Episode Synopsis: "A feud between Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini is examined. Host Don Wildman examines a captivating portrait at The Houdini Museum." "The Houdini Museum, Owned by a couple of seasoned magicians, the Houdini Museum has helped put Scranton, PA, on the map with a veritable treasure trove of objects related to the performer, such as mirror handcuffs, a collection of locks and a straitjacket" (the portrait from Houdini's home of Houdini's mother. I do not believe this grand portrait in the original frame has ever been shown on television. )
