Dorothy Dietrich becomes the first women in history to catch a bullet in her mouth. The Bullet Catch has killed twelve men and injured many others. Houdini said he would try it after well known magician Chung Ling Soo was killed doing a bullet catch.

Houdini backed out. Houdini received a letter from the then Dean of Magic, Harry Keller requesting that he not do the stunt. Keller warned Houdini that there were too many things that could go wrong. Houdini, it seems, heeded his advice.
