The Amazing Mr. X A.K.A. The Spiritualist (1948)

An American romantic mystery directed by Bernard Vorhaus.
A widow and her sister meet a man claiming to be a magician.
This was one of the most boring films I have ever had the displeasure to see. I turned it off at about the 45 minute mark because it was just the widow missing her husband, hearing a voice calling to her and an opportunist wizard looking to get laid. "Your husband is dead? Watch this! I can do a magic trick!". No matter how boring it was, there was some really good camera-work going on. Some of the shots were just immaculate. Perfect lighting and exposure can't save a bad movie though. I rate it shit because I had to turn it off.
