From out of the surf it came...a familiar voice...a voice that belonged to the afterlife!

An atmospheric masterpiece, The Amazing Mr. X stars Turhan Bey as Alexis, a mystery man who claims to communicate with spirits. Appearing on the beach one night, Alexis easily charms a depressed widow and her sister (Lynn Bari and Cathy O'Donnell). The sly Alexis makes a living by separating gullible people from their money, but before this tale is over he will learn that the living are far more dangerous than the dead. Thanks to exceptional cinematography by John Alton, director Bernard Vorhaus delivers a film that oozes weird passion and sinister suspense. This is a movie that breathes right on your neck!

    Press Quotes

    I loved the visual look of the film, the performances, the noir vibe and the characters? I enjoyed the extras on this one more than the film. The commentary was great.

         —DVD News

    The Amazing Mr. X is a wonderful little movie, full of dark atmosphere, engaging performances, and most importantly, some of the best cinematography of the era? the new Blu-ray from The Film Detective is a must-have for cinephiles eager to discover the films of the past in unprecedented quality and presentation. Highly recommended.

         —Cereal At Midnight

    It's a gorgeous film with gauzy, dreamlike cinematography from John Alton (The Big Combo) that adds a dreamy layer to the noir visuals.
