Houdini - Movie Marketing

Summer is the time for movie blockbusters. If you have been to a movie theater lately you can see some wonderfully imaginative displays and striking advertising to promote films.

I recently came across a few Houdini related posters, ads and even premiums, that were used to promote his films.

This is a 24-sheet (!) poster used to entice the public to see Houdini's movie serial, The Master Mystery (1918-1919). I can't even imagine how stunning this poster would look in color.

More to come...
