Though he undergoes extensive testing to verify his psychic powers, many people are still skeptical--until he uses his unique gifts to solve a murder. The real Peter Hurkos appears in the closing segment. The two parts of "The Peter Hurkos Story"were later combined and released as a theatrical feature in Europe.
