Synopsis:
The Great Maximus (Claude Rains) has got a new act for the music halls where he makes his living. Working with his beautiful wife Rene (Fay Wray), he poses as a mind reader. It's all a trick, of course: he certainly doesn't have the gift for real. Or so he thinks... When he correctly predicts a terrible train crash, Maximus becomes an instant celebrity. But his new-found fame - and his friendship with sultry Christine Shawn (Jane Baxter) - threatens his marriage. Worse is to come: he is accused not of foreseeing accidents but actually causing them...

Interesting psychological thriller - The Clairvoyant review by Mr Aquarium

Spoiler Alert
20/01/2019

It's old, black and white, and some of the accents are [as was often the way in British pre-1960s films] rather la-di-dah. However, the film is tightly scripted and is an interesting mix of the psychological and the - perhaps - supernatural. One of the pleasing aspects of this film is that it's socially subversive, almost as a casual by-product of the script. At several points, hard-working and endangered workers are contrasted with the hedonistic rich; very unexpected for a British film of the 1930s. Worth a look if you accept the usual limitations of films of this time.
