CLAIRVOYANT, THE (1935)
Husband-and-wife music hall act Claude Rains and Fay Wray have a well-honed mind-reading act, based on a clever code secretly exchanged between the two. But one night, a young woman (Jane Baxter) attends their show, and Rains is surprised to discover a kind of "second sight" comes to him, allowing him to perform the act's mind reading without Wray's assistance. Rains goes on to predict various events, both disastrous and fortunate, but he can only do so when Baxter is beside him. Will the new pair's psychic bond undo the matrimonial one between Rains and Wray? An elegantly eerie tale from the mightily prolific British director Maurice Elvey. DIR Maurice Elvey; SCR Charles Bennett, Bryan Edgar Wallace, from the novel by Ernst Lothar; PROD Michael Balcon. UK, 1935, b&w, 81 min. NOT RATED
