'The Clairvoyant' is an obscure British thriller that fans of Claude Rains ('The Invisible Man') and Fay Wray ('King Kong') should try and hunt down. While slightly flawed it's still extremely entertaining, and Rains and the beautiful Wray make a great team. Watching it I sometimes wondered what Alfred Hitchcock could have done with the material (incidentally Charles Bennett who scripted Hitch's classic 'The 39 Steps' co-wrote it), but that's not to say it isn't interesting as it stands. Rains plays Maximus, a fake psychic who has a music hall act with his wife Rene(Wray). He unexpectedly finds himself getting genuine premonitions when he is near Christine Shawn (Jane Baxter). This leads to many complications, a strain on his marriage, and his eventual prosecution. The movie mixes light comedy, romance and darker moments into a nice blend that should be appreciated by anybody who enjoys Hitchcock's 1930s movies. I don't think 'The Clairvoyant' is anywhere near as good as Hitchcock's best from this period, but it's still above average, and Rains in particular is wonderful. This talented and charismatic actor is always a joy to watch.
