Harry Houdini

Optical Illusionist

The Chinese Water Torture Cell(TCWTC)

The original CWTC was built in England 1911. Houdini first preformed the escape for an audience of one person as part of a one-act play he called Houdini Upside Down!. This was so he could copyright his escape. He did this because with the Milk Can Escape, there were many imitators who copied his act.
