TV Fact #111 – January 31st, 2015:

The 2014 miniseries “Houdini”, based on the life of legendary illusionist and escape artist Harry Houdini, was shot entirely in Budapest, Hungary which is coincidentally the real Houdini’s birthplace. Actor Adrien Brody, who played Houdini in the film, had studied magic as a child, performed many of the show’s stunts himself, including the suspended strait jacket escape and the famous Chinese Water Torture Cell.
