In the1974 cult classic Beyond the Grave, two-time Tony winner Margaret Leighton plays psychic and clairvoyant Madame Orloff.
Made in London by Amicus and Warner Bro’s productions, this film is based on an anthology of four short stories by R. Chetwynd-Hayes. Each of the four stories begins with a customer at a curio shop called Temptations Limited.

This is the story of my first tarot reading. It took place in Chicago in Spring. It was my mother-in-law and husband who wanted a reading as a meaningful activity they could do together. To help them find a place, I called a few spots off Yelp and got ahold of Evon.
“Hello, this is the psychic card reader Evon speaking.” Evon’s voice was very low. “Yes, I’d like to set up a reading.” Was this a male psychic? I wasn’t sure. We set a time and price.

“If the customer has a hole in her pocket, tell her she’s going to lose money,” my father told me when I asked about his time as a tarot reader. Sometimes he pretends fortune-telling is that easy, is that much of a trick, but I know it means more to him than that: for forty years he has trucked around the poster advertising the tarot services he offered as a young man hitchhiking around America. On it he painted the star card from the Marseilles Tarot deck, a deck designed around 15th century in Italy.

“Imagine it’s 1903 and you’ve just invented the world’s first airplane” or, Backpage Horoscopes
Most Saturdays in high school I would meet my friend for morning coffee at the local, bohemian roastery. In the back was a defunct train track where people from the Mission came to smoke with other regulars: sci-fi aficionados, massage therapists, entrepreneurs and the like. My friend and I, we came for the coffee and the free paper. In the back of the free paper were the horoscopes.
