Terror Island

Many people know about Harry Houdini, the magician, but did you know that he made a few silent movies as well? In April 1920, his movie Terror Island was released.

Houdini plays the part of a submarine inventor who tries to rescue a young woman held captive on a tropical island. Some of the scenes were filmed on California's Santa Catalina Island. Unfortunately, this seems to be another silent film lost to history.
