That's a must-see movie! I believe it's pre-Hollywood censor/code so it has some tough emotional moments, but also includes some very neat cold-reading and mentalism scenes.

Please note the screening was LAST Sunday, and was a great evening. There theater was full and a number of people who had a connection to the movie/book on different levels. This movie came out in 1947, definitely after the movie code/Hayes office began regulating what could be shown on the screen. Those who have read the book, will know how much was left out, to be able to produce this movie.
