After his passing, his wife held such séances every year for 10 years, eventually stopping since Houdini did not make his presence known.
On October 31, 1936, Houdini’s widow held the “Final Houdini Séance” atop of the roof of The Knickerbocker Hotel in Hollywood, California.
A recording of the séance was made and issued as a record album.
