El Grande


Explanation:
The Great Houdini
Houdini, el Grande

In this way you emphasize the adjective "the great". Otherwise the importance of greatness is shadowed.

Good luck,

It depends


Explanation:
For example if your talking about Alexander the Great the translation would be Alejandro Magno and not Alejandro el Grande . The last one is incorrect. Be careful how you use it for your example el Gran Houdini is correct.
