Harry Houdini didn't escape from the manifest
Harry Houdini returned to the United States on board the Imperator in 1920. Obviously he didn't escape from the manifest and hopefully no one tried to throw him overboard with chains or leg irons on.
Indexes to these records are a part of the Ancestry.com's set of databases. Search for your own relative in ship manifests--hopefully he wasn't thrown overboard in leg irons either.
