The wonderfully talented Tony Curtis heads up two all-star casts in these unforgettable classic films. Boasting as his first leading film role, Tony stars as the world's most captivating magician and escape artist in Houdini. From his beginnings as a "wild man" carnival act to the internationally famous feat of escaping from a locked trunk in an ice-jammed river, Houdini effectively captures the amazing life and courage of this fascinating man. Those Daring Young Men in Their Jaunty Jalopies is a hilarious, romantic and action-packed romp that follows an international, star-studded cast through the beautiful landscape of Monte Carlo. Tony Curtis stars as the dashin Schofield who teams up with the calculating Sir Cuthbert Ware Armitage (Terry-Thomas) in a zany, winner-take-all car rally beset with scheming competitors, treacherous cliffs - and one very beguiling blonde (Susan Hampshire).
