LOS ANGELES, September 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – CinÃ©digme, the leading independent streaming company serving passionate fan bases, today announced that The cinema detective (TFD), the classic media streaming network and film archive that restores and distributes classic films, releases a special edition version of the mystifying film noir classic, The incredible Mr. X (1948), on Blu-ray and DVD, October 5.

Appearing on the beach one evening, Alexis easily charms a depressed widow (Lynn bari) and her sister (Cathy O’Donnell).
