Superman (1941) on IMDb

Lobby card for the film


Two years after her husband’s death, Christine Faber (Lynn Bari) hears her late husband Paul Faber (Donald Curtis) calling out one night. She walks outside her beachfront home and encounters Alexis (Turhan Bey), a mysterious stranger who seems to know all about her. After more ghostly manifestations, Christine and her younger sister Janet (Cathy O’Donnell) become enmeshed in the strange life of Alexis, a spiritualist. But Alexis finds himself in more trouble than he had in mind. After staging a convincing séance involving the deceased Paul, he is surprised by the appearance of Paul Faber himself, alive and well. It turns out he had faked his own death. Paul blackmails Alexis into continuing his con of the two sisters.

One evening, while Alexis romances Janet, Christine hears Paul’s voice again. She emerges from her bedroom to investigate but falls partway from a cliff. She is ultimately saved by Alexis. Martin (Richard Carlson), her fiancé, tries to convince Christine to leave her house for safety and stay in a hospital; but Christine refuses, entranced by the recurring voice of Paul. Later, Janet suspects something fishy in Paul’s “visitations” and searches the house for loudspeakers. She finds both Alexis and Paul, concealed in a small room, with microphones, wire recordings, and other tricks of the con game. Paul threatens Janet with a pistol, but Alexis tries to protect her from harm. While doing so, he is fatally shot by Paul. The police arrive. Paul shoots at them; but the cops return fire, killing him.
