Who did houdini become strong with?
When Houdini was on his deathbed, he told the surgeon who had operated on him that he wished he had become a doctor. The doctor, Dr. Kennedy, could hardly believe what he had heard. He told Houdini, "You've entertained millions and I am just an ordinary surgeon." Houdini told him, "but what you do is real, while I, in almost every respect, am a fake."
A man named Robert-Houdin was a famous magician that Houdini studied. Houdin did what he dreamed of doing and became famous and rich for doing magic tricks. Houdini said," From the moment I began to study the art he became my guide and hero. I asked nothing more of life than to become in my profession like Robert-Houdin.
Houdini used to hold competition for strong men to punch him in the stomach, if they could injure him they won, if not Houdini did. It was said that the day he died such a competition was going on, except that instead of tightening his stomach as the punch approached he coughed. Full impact of the punch killed him.
