Harry Houdini ORIGINAL Vintage "The Grim Game" Brochure 1919

$2,250.00

Harry Houdini 
ORIGINAL RARE Vintage 1919 "
The Grim Game" Promotional Movie Brochure

 

Spectacular, EXTREMELY RARE  and quite beautiful piece of magic and Harry Houdini history!  

For nearly 90 years this film was deemed a "Lost Film".    Until an astonishing find a few years ago from a 95 year old Houdini collector.   The film was restored and featured at the TCM (Turner Classic Movie) Festival in March of 2015.   Any original paper on this film is exceedingly rare .

This is the only Movie Program we have ever seen and based on our research, none have appeared for sale before this one.   It opens to a large 12x18" and in addition to a spectacular cover featuring Houdini hanging from a plane,  the inside and back have amazing animated graphics and artwork of Houdini in various situations.    Four page fold out.     A truly amazing find!  And amazing condition for nearly 100 years old!!
