Movie Info

Also known as The Amazing Mr. X, The Spiritualist stars Turhan Bey as the title character, a mysterious mystic named Alexis. Making a comfortable living by fleecing the gullible wealthy, Alexis' latest target is grieving young widow Christine Faber (Lynn Bari). Hoping to communicate with her husband, who supposedly died in a car crash two years earlier, Christine submits to Alexis' crystal-ball act. Our hero finds out more than he bargained for when the "deceased" Mr. Faber (Donald Curtis) turns up very much alive as the central figure in an elaborate fraud scheme.

A rich widow hears the voice of her dead husband calling, then meets a charming psychic walking on the beach. Coincidence? This quiet, atmospheric movie plays like a film noir commissioned by Val Lewton; slow to get started but it has a reasonably satisfying third act.
