Harry Houdini goes from human popsicle to defrosted marvel searching for his true love!
Most know Harry Houdini as the master escape artist and magician he was but not many know he took a crack at acting. He only starred in five silent film and this one has him playing a man named Hillary who plays a ship mate who is frozen in the ice in the late 1800s. Sixty years later, he's discovered by a bunch of explorers and thawed out. Still alive, he struggles to accept a 1920s lifestyle and is considered crazy when he sees a descendant of his former loved one and thinks its the same person (they also share the same name). What seems like an exciting and interesting film is mostly a bore. The plot moves a slow pace and tries throwing in mumbo jumbo about reincarnation. The only thing that would make this film watchable is watching Houdini escape from a straight jacket, nearly tumble off Niagara Falls and what looks like him actually being trapped in ice (it's never been confirmed whether it's really him but when they're chipping him out, it looks awfully realistic). Houdini seems to want to be another Buster Keaton or Harold Lloyd but falls well short.
