Cast & Crew
Professor Botts, a meek psychology professor, who is secretly in love with Molly McIntyre, his housekeeper's daughter, tells the spiritualist society of which he is chairman that he will leave his body, go into a trance, and reappear in a spiritual form. When "Ek"--a spirit with aggressive tendencies--enters his body, the professor surprises the entire town by thrashing some scheming politicians who have threatened him, and then, slightly intoxicated, he whips Ben Wadley, a scoundrel who has designs on Molly. When the spirit "Ek" leaves his body and the spirit of the professor again enters its fleshly form, Ezra learns that Molly loves him--although he cannot remember any of the events that occurred during his trance--and he is nominated for mayor.
