Houdini: Unlocking the Secrets is an American magic sprecial that first aired in May, 1995.

Production illusion Edit

On the beach, Jonathan Pendragon displays an empty frame. Curtains briefly close the sides, and when they open Charlotte Pendragon and Melinda Saxe are posing inside in matching thong swimsuits.

Under Water Chain Escape Edit

Out on the lake, Charlotte Pendragon will brave the icy waters. Her brief swimsuit leaves no hiding places as she is shackled hand and foot. She must escape under water.

Explanation of Jacket Escape Edit

Lance Burton explained how to get out of a straight-jacket and how Houdini was thought to have done it.

Sawing a woman in half Edit

Houdini rarely performed his unique versions of this most famous illusion. Charlotte Pendragon places Melinda Saxe into a trance to recreate a baffling vertical sawing.

Thumb Tie Edit

Back on the beach, Melinda Saxe does a zaney version of Houdini's Thumb Tie.

Metamorphosis Edit

Houdini would be proud to see the speed that The Pendragon's perform Metamorphosis. If you blink you miss it all.

Water Torture Cell Edit

Melinda Saxe recreates one of Houdini's more dangerous stunts. Shackled and placed in water upside down, Melinda must escape from the small space before she runs out of air.

Needle Swallow Edit

David Williamson goes crazy after swallowing a handful of needles.

Coffin of Death Edit

Jonathan Pendragon recreates Houdini's dynamite escape. Wearing a brief silver bikini, Charlotte is blindfolded, gagged, cuffed hand and foot, and then placed inside a small wooden coffin suspended in the air. In 90 seconds a timed bomb attached to the coffin explodes: can she escape?

Vanishing Elephant Edit

Charlotte Pendragon presents Houdini's masterpiece. A five ton elephant vanishes from the middle of the stage, with Melinda Saxe on its back.
