The Amazing Mr. X, also known as The Spiritualist, is a 1948 thriller film directed by Bernard Vorhaus with cinematography by John Alton. Like the film noir Nightmare Alley released a year earlier, this film tells the story of a phony spiritualist racket. The film (also sometimes called The Spiritualist) is prominently featured in Alton's book on cinematography Painting with Light.

Cast Edit

The film stars Turhan Bey, Lynn Bari, Cathy O'Donnell, and Richard Carlson. Carole Landis was originally hired to play the part taken by Bari, but Landis committed suicide a few days before shooting began.
