I recall seeing a photo of Houdini, totally naked, in shackles and in a jail cell. I was telling another friend about the photo, and he thinks of himself as a Houdini expert, and he said he had never even heard of this photo. We found the famous one of him in a cloth diaper, or whatever it is, but not one of him nude. Is my memory failing me, or does this photo really exist? If so, where can I find a copy to show my friend?
Never criticize someone else until you have walked a mile in their shoes. Then, when you do criticize them, you will be a mile away from them and you will have their shoes.

Thanks don - that may be the photo, but I seem to recall seeing a full frontal photo of him, without the keys in front of him. I am probably wrong about that, but my mind wants to believe that I saw it somewhere in my youth. I remember seeing it in a Magic Shop, in a plain brown envelope, and it was only for sale to adults (which I was not at the time), but I did manage to get a look at the photo one time, and I seem to recall it being a bit more revealing. It's not that important - it just came up in conversation and I thought that if it was available once then I imagine it is still available somewhere.

I never saw a nude photo either. I saw one that someone said was him, but just his rump was facing the camera. A few weeks ago I picked up a newspaper article with Houdini on the loin cloth. The newspaer added a jail cell to cover the vital area. Smile

Well Marvello,if there is a full frontal photo of him nude(I never heard or saw such a photo) we'll know for sure if he was Jewish.
