October 31st is not only Halloween but also the 78th anniversary of the death of Harry Houdini. Houdini, one of the greatest magicians and showmen who ever lived, died on October 31, 1926 in Detroit of peritonitis due to a ruptured appendix. Famous in life, Houdini is even more famous in death because of his pledge to find a way to communicate from the grave.

"According to his wife, Bess, and contrary to many reports, Houdini never made contact from the great beyond," says professional magician and mindreader Bob Garner.

But does that mean it's impossible for Houdini or anyone else to escape the bonds of death and communicate with loved ones here on Earth? "I think it is possible," says Garner. "There are many who say that they have either communicated directly with their deceased relatives and friends or have received a sign from them."

"Harry Houdini ... Can You Hear Me Now?"
