With Pan's Labyrinth and The Shape of Water director Guillermo del Toro's new NIGHTMARE ALLEY in the Oscar -running, we bring you the original 1947 version; the first take on William Lindsay Gresham's superb novel...
"A mean, moody, and well-nigh magnificent melodrama"- Time Out.
Stanton Carlisle is a lowlife working in a carnival. Knowing a good con when he sees one, he learns the tricks of a mind-reading act from Zeena, then tosses her aside. In time, he becomes "The Great Stanton," star attraction of swanky nightclubs and the darling of society. But with all his notoriety built on lies, it's only a matter of time before exposure brings Stanton's world crashing down around him.
