Houdini in the German Courtroom (Ehrenerklarung!), 1902 1 sheet, Atelier J. Zier, Liepsig. Handsomely framed. 43" x 30" Another press stunt of Houdini's was to goad/arrange officials into denouncing him in public and in newspapers as a fraud, unable to really escape from chains, boxes, jails, etc., etc. Houdini would then sue for libel and slander, and create a spectacle in Court, by escaping in view of the Judges/Jury/Public/Press in attendance.
