Trivia

When Houdini dismisses Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's credulousness by saying he "once authenticated a doctored photograph of fairies in a garden," he refers to the Cottingley Fairies. Two English girls faked a series of fairy photos in 1917 which Doyle wrote about in 1920 as evidence of metaphysical phenomena. See more »

Goofs

When Houdini is going away to Europe, his mother says to him "Vielleicht, wenn du kommst zurück, werde ich nicht mehr da sein." This revealed her to be a non-native German speaker. 'Wenn' translates into English as 'if.' Some may say that she say "Vielleicht, wann du kommst..." This would also be incorrect as 'wann' is a question word. She also broke a very large element of German grammar that no native or fluent speaker would break. The correct statement for the subtitle translation ("Perhaps when you come back, I wont be here anymore") should be "Vielleicht, als du zurück kommst, werde ich nicht mehr da sein." Her pronunciation especially on the word 'ich' is also very strange. See more »
