Dorothy Young, Houdini's assistant, on: Harry and Bess
By the time I met them, they were so completely compatible. He just adored her. And she was a little sprite [and] tiny little thing. And you could tell just by the way they looked at each other across the table that they loved each other very much.
Mr. Smith would sit with Houdini on one side, and wed just sit anyplace around. But they always looked lovingly at each other. They had a wonderful relationship.
