Escape! The Story of The Great Houdini

Houdini was a man of many names. The King of Cards, he was called as his circus name. The King of Handcuffs, his magician name. Harry Houdini is his real name, or is it? Ehrich Weiss was his real name. Harry was the changing and rearranging of the letters in Ehrich. Houdini was simply the adding of the letter "I" to the end of his idol's last name, Houdin. Houdini also said he was born Appleton, Wisconsin. He was actually born in Budapest, Hungary. As you can see Harry or shall I say Ehrich not only loved magic tricks, but he also enjoyed actual tricks.
