Harry Houdini! Superstar!
Harry Houdini is a legend even today, more than 80 years since his death. In his day, he was what we would now call a Superstar. And THIS is his only full-length feature film. Granted, this story line is a little hard to follow, but that's part of the fun of watching this movie. He is introduced in this movie as a frozen human being, and he does a great job of convincing us he's actually frozen. Later, his escape from a straight jacket/water torture/prison cell is captured on film. If you can't follow the plot, at least watch it to see this scene.
And remember who you're watching: Harry Houdini, Superstar.
