Nightmare Alley

1947 NR

Always looking for his next big chance, ambitious carnival barker Stan Carlisle (Tyrone Power) moves in on Zeena (Joan Blondell), the widow of the carnival's mentalist. After Zeena teaches Stan every mind-reading trick she knows, he marries another beautiful performer (Coleen Gray) who becomes his nightclub act partner. But Stan's new wife isn't prepared for her husband's callous plan to con a millionaire by conjuring up the man's dead daughter.
