Harry Houdini was an American illusionist, magician, escapologist, stunt performer, actor, historian, film producer, pilot, and debunker, noted for his sensational escape magic acts.
His youth was depicted in the 1987 Disney Sunday Movie biographical telefilm, Young Harry Houdini, where he was played by Wil Wheaton as the young version and Jeffrey DeMunn as the adult version. He was also mentioned by Oscar Diggs in the 2013 fantasy film, Oz the Great and Powerful, and in the third episode of Agent Carter. In addition, supplementary material for Atlantis: The Lost Empire reveals that he often visited Atlantis after its rediscovery. A picture of Houdini can be briefly seen in the TV movie, My Date with the President's Daughter.
