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>

Over the top plot
7 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's rather unbelievable that anyone would fall for this spiritualist stuff. Here the spiritualist world is simply a movie shown on a regular movie screen, which isn't very other worldly. There are a number of interesting 1930s characters in the movie though, which made it pretty enjoyable to me. It's interesting to contrast their fake "spiritualism" work day personalities with their actual everyday personalities. The 2 black dudes spend their working day being zombie like guards, but then enjoy tossing dice after work. I'd enjoy hanging out with them more than anybody else in the movie.

Anyway I always enjoy Misha Auer, who never gets a starring role, as far as I know, except in this movie. I also enjoyed seeing Mona Lisa, in her only talking role. I always wondered what she did after posing for that painting :-)
