On the Set of Houdini

This is the last bit of images I have left from our stay in Budapest. While we were there, we saw a movie set, with big banners on which "The Great Houdini" was written. Being a movie geek, I immediately looked up what was being shot, and discovered that the History channel was shooting a miniseries on Houdini called by the same name.

All of the actors and extras were dressed appropriately for the time period that is being portrayed in the series.



Lights are on!




I hope you enjoyed this small morsel of photos, that was left from the Budapest Series. If you would like to view the main series click here: The Budapest Travel Series

    1. Thanks for trying again. I had some technical difficulties, because I put quotations in my title earlier. I guess that somehow upset my template :)

  3. It would be fun to "stumble" upon a movie set like that and fun to watch and photograph, too. I love your photos. I hope you're able to watch the series when it's on television.

    1. They did choose a good spot for a period shoot. But then again, you can't even try to point a camera in Budapest somewhere and not capture something old.

    1. It's not set in Budapest, they are just shooting it here. Maybe for tax reasons, who knows...

  18. How exciting! I will be looking for this mini-series! A great many movies are shot in Hungary, aren't they? I remember when they made Cold Mountain (based on one of my favorite books) that it was shot in Hungary. At the time I was disappointed they hadn't used the rural American south, where the story is located, but Hungary looked very much like it!
