Houdini -- November 29, 2018

Film Daily, 17-November-1918
Escapologist Harry Houdini wanted to expand his exposure to the public, so he began to appear in movies starting in 1918 with the serial The Master Mystery.

I saw what survives of it on a DVD set from Kino. It doesn't make much sense, but that is typical of serial plots. I liked the robot, Q the Automaton. Its gang was called the Emissaries of the Automaton. Great name.
