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.

While she strolls along the beach to meet her boyfriend. She hears the disembodied voice of her late hubby on the surf. She comes upon a man standing w/ a crow or raven next to him that sounds like its laughing. The man she meets here is Lexis or lexus oh its Alexis. (ok for a guy tho!!) so the dude is suppose to be psychic. He tries to help but says to talk to the spirt. Is he a fake? Is The late husand really dead? I have to re watch myself to find out!! For what I saw there was some interesting ?hunting? going on. Floating clothing or was it a ghost, stuff falling off furniture etc. I?ll go for a C
