Critic Reviews for Houdini
Hollywood legend Tony Curtis gives one of his best performances in Houdini, a colorful biography set in the 1890s through 1920s, and he does it playing opposite his then-wife Janet Leigh....
There's enough whimsy on display to make the film a pleasant charmer.
Colorful, but full of falsehoods, story of Houdini. Curtis is pretty good.
Accuracy, be darned; this is pure entertainment bio-pic with Tony Curtis at the height of his charismatic matinee idol period; plus working with wife Janet Leigh isn't bad either.
Standard issue star vehicle biopic.
Audience Reviews for Houdini
An interesting movie about the great magician Houdini, but it could have been better, maybe more biographical?
It was okay, a nice little love story in there, it had some interesting things
Highly fictionalized but very entertaining story of the great magician. Curits acquits himself well in the lead and Janet is lovely.
