Dai Vernon Report Abuse
He was considered the best magician. He always said Houdini isn't a magician he simply is a escape artist. He was the only magician ever to fool Houdini with a card trick. If a guy ranked number 1 on this list got beat by him he should surely be the best magician of all time.
