The Other Person (Dutch : Onder spiritistischen dwang) is a 1921 Dutch-British  silent mystery film directed by Maurits Binger and B.E. Doxat-Pratt. It was a co-production between a Dutch film company and a British film company. 
The film was based on a 1920 mystery novel called The Other Person which was written by Fergus Hume. Although Hume wrote a number of successful books from the late 19th century to the early 20th century, his main claim to fame is that one of his novels inspired Arthur Conan Doyle to write A Study in Scarlet in 1887, which marked the debut of Sherlock Holmes. Lead actress Zoe Palmer went on to star in Sweeney Todd (1928). 
The film is about a spiritualist whose darkest secret is revealed during a seance, a scene that critic Troy Howarth said was strikingly similar to a scene in Dario Argento's 1974 film Deep Red , in which a murderer is unmasked during a seance.

It was directed by Edwin J. Collins and starred Sybil Thorndike as Esmeralda and Booth Conway as the hunchback.

This version emphasized romance and melodrama over horror.
