Vorhaus’s 1948 thriller, Amazing Mr. X aka The Spiritualist

Post by Admin on Mon Mar 30, 2009 11:18 pm

OK its about a psychic fraud trying to rip someone off but hey we tend to see a bit of that

The film was photographed by the brilliant and eccentric John Alton, one of the seminal stylists of film noir. “It’s not what you light,” Alton once observed. “It’s what you don’t light.”….

“Mr. X” is a gothic thriller starring the Austrian actor Turhan Bey, who brings all his exotic charm (Turkish father, Czech mother) to the role of a fraudulent psychic consultant attempting to draw a wealthy young widow (Lynn Bari) into his clutches.
