(35 votes)
houdinimilkcanescape.jpg Milk Can Escape was an escape created by Harry Houdini in 1908 and introduced in St. Louis. Houdini would escape from inside a giant milk can filled with water. It became a very popular trick and he took it on tour throughout the U.S., England, and Germany.

The Effect: Houdini would be handcuffed and sealed inside an over-sized milk can filled with water and make his escape behind a curtain. As part of the effect, Houdini would invite members of the audience to hold their breath along with him while he was inside the can. Advertised with dramatic posters that proclaimed "Failure Means A Drowning Death", the escape proved to be a sensation.
