At the end, when the villain is shooting at Alexis, Alexis states he is out of bullets. He says, however, he has 7 bullets, one in the chamber. He clearly has a revolver, and that does not have a chamber in the same way a pistol has. Although they exist, it is doubtful it is a 7-chambered revolver. See more »
Alexis, do you think I'd make a good celestial companion?
Darling, I think you'd be wonderful!
And we'd love each other through all eternity?
Oh, even longer!

The millionaire widow Christine Faber (Lynn Bari) misses her husband Paul Faber (Donald Curtis), who died two years ago in a car explosion. Christine dates the lawyer Martin Abbott (Richard Carlson) that wants to propose to marry her. While walking on the beach going to Martin´s home, Christine overhears her deceased husband and stumbles upon the mysterious Alexis (Turhan Bey). He tells that he is a spiritualist and discloses things about Chris and Paul, fascinating Chris. She becomes obsessed to meet Alexis and her younger sister Janet Burke (Cathy O'Donnell), Martin and a private detective investigate Alexis. However Janet is easily manipulated by Alexis and becomes also obsessed for him. One day, Martin and the detective break in Alexis´s house during a seance and out of the blue, they see Paul. Is Alexis a con artist or a spiritualist indeed?
"The Amazing Mr. X" is a film with good moments but also with laughable scenes. The naïve Christine and Janet Faber are ridiculous characters but the plot point is interesting when Paul appears. In the present days, the plot is absolutely unbelievable but the film entertains. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "O Incrível Senhor X" ("The Amazing Mr. X")
