#TurhanBey #movieReview $Mystery #ghost

The Amazing Mr. X, also known as The Spiritualist, was a 1948 mystery thriller directed by Bernard Vorhaus with cinematography by John Alton. The film stars Turhan Bey as a phony psychic trying to fool two sisters played by Lynn Bari and Cathy O’Donnell with his gimmick of talking to the dead, but will this pretend spiritualist actually find himself in over his head? Well, let’s watch and see. I’ll give an overview of the film, spoiler-free, then offer some closing thoughts.
