Tonight, June 23, 2021, at 9.15 pm on Sky Cinema 1, Houdini – The Last Wizard, a 2007 film directed by Gillian Armstrong, will be broadcast. The film, set in the 1920s, retraces a cross-section of the life of Harry Houdini. But let’s see all the information together in detail.
In 1926, Harry Houdini arrives in Scotland for his tour. In order to demystify several charlatan mediums, he is giving away a large sum of money ($ 10,000) to anyone who can reveal his mother’s last words, spoken on his deathbed. Houdini will be approached by the sensual “psychic” Mary McGarvie, with her daughter in tow, at first intent on cheating him. However, a love story soon arises between the two. Mary, despite having discovered that Houdini’s mother could not have uttered any last sentence to her son because the latter was away for work, does not feel like taking advantage of it and gives up. Later it is discovered that the daughter is the “true psychic”, falling into a trance and revealing everything to the magician, even predicting death at the hands of “a red-haired angel”.
