  • SpacePirate's rating of the film The Mystery of Mr. X

    The only film I have seen of Elizabeth Allans. What a gem she was. A shame her career didnt really take off and the films she was in are relatively unknown, like this one. She kind of reminds me like a cross between Norma Shearer and Carole Lombard at times. Anyways, the plot is straightforward and very similar to a John Gilbert film where hes a magician trying to clear himself of murder. Extra star for Allan
