Title -  Magician Harry Houdini in Chains


Description -  Stone walls and chains do not make a prison -- for Houdini.  Houdini followed his performance in "The master mystery" with the "Grim game," the first of two films that he made for Famous Players. That company had been founded in 1912 by Adolph Zukor and merged in 1916, with Jesse L. Lasky's Feature Play company.  Soon Famous Players would merge with the distribution company Paramount Pictures Corporation.  As the film industry expanded Houdini attempted to adapt his daring escapes to the screen.
