Movie Review by Movie Addict
March 13th, 2008

A "B" Classic

Sometimes when you are sorting through the trash, you can find a rare gem. This film is one of them. The cinematography is excellent and the acting is first rate. It has a compelling story also - just the kind that I like.

I wasn't sure where this was going at first. Lynn Bari, a WWII pinup girl played Christine, a woman who is obsessed with her dead husband. She hears his voice and, in one instance, is visited by a ghost.

I thought this was going to be a supernatural thriller, but then Alexis (Turhan Bey) shows up as a con man/mystic/fortune teller with all the gadgets and gizmos that you would expect to con the gullible. Maybe he was behind the ghost and the voices. He certainly has Christine and her sister, Janet (Cathy O'Donnell) convinced.

But then the story takes an unexpected twist that moves it from thriller to film noir. Here is where the writers really shone and we are on the edge of our seats wondering what will come next.

In the end, the con man becomes the hero.
