Watching Miracles For Sale, smiling at the early special effects used to make sugar disappear and the sawing a lady in half with bullets. The magic tutor on this movie was Paul Le Paul.

I’m quite surprised no one mentioned the fabulous movie “inception” by Christopher Nolan?

If there ever was a mind reading themed movie then this is it. Sender & receiver. Remote viewing.

It is also the basis of a treasure trove of ideas that one could use during one’s shows.

Special movie so I want to post early for the weekend movie.

THE MIND READER!

Chandler, a con-man, and his helper Frank decide to create a clairvoyant act for the carny circuit, as a little research reveals Americans spent $125 million on mind-readers and astrology (1933). The carny, renamed Chandra, falls for one of his marks, Sylvia, but their love is tested when he brings tragedy to other peoples' lives and she asks him to go straight.

I keep thinking I am going to run out of movies, but surprisely my research keeps producing new results.

Purposefully releasing movie once a week so this topic gets as much exposure as possible so all the members will be aware and remember this as source or inspiration for their acts.

My goal is for this to be the most complete list of theater movies and TV series concerning metalism.
But I will only list movies that are from beginning to end featuring psychics. Not just a brief character or story element.

You may want to consider 'devil doll' 1964. About a hypnotist who
can trap souls in ventriloquist dummies.

Magic in the Moonlight by Woody Allen has an interesting Chung Ling Soo pastiche versus a beautiful, young spiritualist and her Stage Mother.
