Nightmare Alley (1947) DVD9
Stanton Carlisle is a low-level carnival barker, working small towns across the country. When he learns of a professional secret held by Zeena (Joan Blondell, The Cincinnati Kid), a "mentalist" in the traveling show, his ambition takes hold. Betraying Zeena and stealing her methods of mind reading, Stanton heads for the big city to profit from his new abilities. He sets himself up as a spiritual conduit to the afterlife, as a way of fleecing wealthy people who have lost loved ones.
But as his ambition grows, the house of cards he builds begins to crumble around him, and Stanton must assume more dangerous and deceitful methods to prevent his fall.
