Blogcast #7: Dynamite Magazine Harry Houdini Punch-Out

By Tom Interval

Dynamite magazine, issue #79, December 1980, features an article about Harry Houdini titled “HOUDINI: The Magic Man Who Knew Whodunit!” As part of that theme, the mag includes a companion two-piece punch-out that, when constructed, becomes a mechanical toy showing Houdini escaping from heavy chains and shackles. This is the subject of today’s blogcast, which shows an animation of the device in action! Watch below or directly on the Interval Magic YouTube channel (@intervalmagic). And while you’re there, please “Like” the video (if you like it), subscribe, and share it with anyone who might enjoy it.
