Houdini Speaks! - UPDATED

Courtesy of the massive Internet Archives ("Universal Access to Human Knowledge"), here's a 1914 Edison Wax Cylinder of Houdini pitching his Water Torture Cell. It's a rather stilted delivery, but at least you get to hear his voice.

While we're on the subject, if you have an extra $50,000+ you might want to consider putting in a bid for the Milk Can poster below. The sellers claim it's one of only three extant original copies of the 1908 classic. Drool!

UPDATE: I was outbid. My high bid was $29.95 and the poster sold for $68,404. Damn. So close...
