Storyline

Jimmy Reeves, a smart young newspaper reporter, saves a banker. John Walton, and his daughter, Claire, from ruin and disgrace and also wins the affections of the banker's daughter. Mr. Walton and Claire are induced to attend a séance held by Swami Yomurda, a fake spiritualist, which is a redundant description. Impressed by the fake Swami's trickery, Walton almost loses his fortune and his daughter before the reporter exposes the bunko scheme. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

No Future for This Swami!
8 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With a bunch of gullible types like this film presents, we could all make a fortune off them. They even fall for things like a back projection of film, thinking it has some magical quality. The bad guys are good at bilking unsuspecting bank presidents and rich widows by making contact with loved ones. This sounds interesting until you see it. It has that old cliché of getting rid of all your problems except the one that is the biggest danger. Why not shoot the reporter who is on to your whole scheme when you are bumping off everyone else? I'm sure mysticism would have appealed to the viewers of the time, but this is just as dull as can be. The only people I cared about were the black guards who were obviously only in it for the cash. They at least had personalities, though they had all the racial stereotypes of the era.
