In July 1949 Leslie Flint hosted a séance in Los Angeles, at Falcon Lair, the former home of Rudolph Valentino. This unusual photo, taken in the bedroom Valentino slept in, shows how the powerful energy of that séance has affected the sitters, making some of them appear transparent.

Photographed in London in 1948 just before a public séance, Leslie is seated inside a wooden cabinet. Two microphones, placed just outside the cabinet, pick up the spirit voices, which are broadcast to loudspeakers for the benefit of the large audience.
