The Man from Beyond is a 1922 silent film starring Harry Houdini as a man found frozen in arctic ice who is brought back to life.


A man named Howard Hillary is found frozen for a hundred years in the arctic ice and is thawed out and awoken. After his awakening he insists that a young woman, Felice, is his fiancée from a century before. Hillary is admitted to a mental institution, but later escapes and realizes that he is not in his own time and that Felice is actually the descendant of his own Felice from a century ago. Hillary joins her in searching for her father, who has been abducted.
