    Titles read: "THE MAN WITH THE X RAY EYES!"

    United States of America.

    C/U of the eyes of Kuda Bux, an Indian man who claims to have x-ray eyes. Before a panel of doctors and newspaper men, Kuda is tested by having cotton wool, dough and surgical bandages placed over his eyes - his head is completely covered!

    A sentence has been written on a blackboard, and Kuda, still covered by bandages, stands at the board and writes the same sentence on it! It says 'This is a test of your sixth sense'. In another test Kuda is asked to go over to two men, one of whom has a cigarette in his mouth and light it - he does so! Then he stands before a table where six candles are standing. He puts out the candle that is lit and lights the second one along - the people watching give him a round of applause. Lastly, he walks around the room, stepping over objects on the ground and picking them up. Amazing!
