Houdini used to carry keys for a variety of types of handcuffs.
People said he used to knock the handcuffs at the right place and they snapped open. others says he used a wire glued to his feet to help open the locks.
Houdini used his favorite song in his show, that song was Pomp And Circumstance.
Yes! Harry Houdini's brother Theo or "Hardeen" used a lot of his tricks and followed in his footsteps. I know this because I just finished a long biography on him.
It depends what kind of memorabilia. If it's handcuffs or restraints used in one of houdini's acts it is definatly worth something. If its a poster or something along those lines, probably still worth quite a bit of money, but not as much.
He used his stage name Harry Houdini. He was not afraid to stop people he thought was ceating the public, so he was not afraid to use his well known name.
Harry Houdini [March 24, 1874-October 31, 1926] was one of the most respected escapologists and magicians of all time. The Society of American Magicians' crest appears at the Houdini gravesite, at Machpelah Cemetery, in the Ridgewood section of Queens, New York. Each year, the SAM gives the Harry Houdini Award to whichever one of its assemblies has shown the most growth. The term, winner of the Harry Houdini Award, may be used facetiously. The recipient is someone who manages to wriggle out of an uncomfortable situation.

Houdini's dislikes: Houdini had great disdain for those that used his art of trickery, to cheat people. He exposed frauds and cheats everywhere he traveled and because of this had many threats on his life. He exposed phoney spiritualists and gambling cheats throughout his long career. Houdini loved magicians but disliked those who copied the challenge escape that was his invention.
Is it not true that Houdini was totally double jointed and could dislocate and re-align his shoulders. There was no one "secret" to Houdini's ability to escape from handcuffs, but a combination of technical knowledge, physical skill, and trickery. It all started with what one locksmith who knew him called his "remarkable knowledge of locks and locking devices." Houdini collected and studied locks all of his life and claimed that he had "photographic eyes" that helped him remember how each type worked and could be opened. Most of the time Houdini used a key hidden in or smuggled into the cabinet or jail cell, either on his person or by an assistant. Depending on how he was bound, Houdini would manipulate the keys with his hands -- sometimes using specially designed extension rods -- or with his teeth. But he also knew tricks for opening many of the simpler types of cuff without keys.

Handcuffs used to be called manacles.
Detectives use handcuffs in the same way that other law enforcement officers do. They are used for restraining prisoners they detain or take into custody.
Handcuffs are primarily used by law enforcement officials such as police officers, and Highway Patrol officers. Their primary function is to restrain the hands of the individual they are being used on.
Yes, his youngest brother Theo( everyone called him Dash), used to be his assistant. Houdini was ver competetive with other magicieans, and one of the only magicians he gave his blessing to was his brother. I do not remember his stage name, but I do know it started with an H and it sounded somewhat like Houdini. I hope I could help! =)
He has used racist names before, but was'nt intending to be directly racist
The most common software program used in conjunction with Houdini is Mantra, which is production-class rendering software.
"Taking a Ride," performed by Kari Kimmel, and "Sleigh Ride," performed by Rebecca Poole, are two songs in the movie Holiday in Handcuffs.

Harry Houdini, the famous magician, and many others, use the word misdirection for the term that leads eyes of onlookers into other areas and do not actually see the tricks that are used. Houdini said, What the eye does not see and the ear does not hear does not happen.
