Cohen The people who live on "Nightmare Alley axe quite a bunch. Some of them are tough, others are 'seamy and one or two are wholesome and simple. They're the inhabitants of a carnival that travels by trucks at night and keeps a weather-eye out for the rustic minions of the law. For a few, the carnival is the last boozy rung down from the big time. But for Stan ' Carlisle, around whom "Nightmare Alley" turjis, it's only the beginning. Everybody knows Stan's bound to get ahead. He's a cheat, a swindler, . a conscienceless charlatan and all of the other mean and contemptible things in the book. The boy goes up fast, too, stealing a mind-reading , code from the guileless widow who adores him and moving into the big time as a mind-reader who preys on suscep tible rich seeking communication with the beyond. As a matter of facr Stan Carlisle is probably the basest and most despicable character of the year. Yet there's a curious serpentine irresisitibility about him, the way Mr. Tyrone Power plays the role. This Stan Carlisle turns the stomach and stabs the interest at the same time. There's hardly a thing he won't stoop to, and his eventual degeneration into a geek," a pitiful stumble-bum who bites the heads off live chickens in a side-show exhibit, has been related with sound dramatic ex citement. Stan Carlisle is the best thing Mr. Power has turned out in a long time. His slick - tongued spieler has a curiously absorbing quality, and he has made no ef forts to soften the reprehensible lowdown. Mr. Power acts out the pivotal part in a thick smoke of evil and sacrilege, and while his Stan Carlisle is not a pretty character, the imagination seldom lets go of the type. - If "Nightmare Alley" slips a peg or two after it quits the carnival grounds for the gilded palaces of entertainment, before that it is a colorful pageant full of atmosphere and movement. The language and the incidents in Mr. William Lindsay Gresham's novel have necessarily been toned down, but Director Edmund Goulding, working alertly around the edges of Mr. Jules Furthman's screen play, has staged . a show that keeps its two hours in high gear. The cast is helpful all the way. Mr. Power puts bis finger immediately on what makes Stan Carlisle tick and keeps it there, and Miss Joan Blondell turns in a mum jkmjm mm 7 rVNaaahLKS "MK. Leara the atara that chrae above yoa in -ft stunningly realistic performance as the unhappy Zeena. Miss Helen Walker's phoney psychologist is a steely no-good; Miss Coleen Gray has the proper sweetness and sim plicity for the role of the thimble-brained Molly who finally upsets Stan's big coup when the fear of Divine retribution overcomes her, and Mr. Ian Keith kicks in with a fine, feeling bit as the hopelessly alcoholic mentalist whose glory is past and faded. In refusing for the most part to compromise with the kind of realism that shocks and revolts, "Nightmare Alley" comes through the mill a movie of deliberate, custurDing fascination. "Fabulous Texan9' FULTON It's a wonder that everyone in tne cast or "The Fabulous Texan" wasnt suffering from trigger- cramp or tne index finger after the filming of that gun-happy movie. The lead is slung around with abandon and when enemies get tired shooting at each other, they apparently try a little intra-mural pistol-fanning just to Tieep. their six-shooters from getting rusty "The Fabulous Texan" is a little different from the ordinary run-of- the-range Western, but it's not the kind of difference that makes it a particularly better picture. True, the horse-chases, the stage-coach holdups, and the promiscuous use of the firearms are enough to satiate the most avid enthusiasts of that school. - But the plot has too many com plexities and doesn't run off as smoothly as it should, , with the good-people living happily ever- after and the bad-people ending up masticating a wad of dust. John Carroll is "The Fabulous Texan" who returns from the Civil War to Millsboro. Tex.i to find the state police are running -the show and surpressing freedom of speech and giving the townspeople a bad time. The way most horse opera lovers would like to see it, is Air. can-on . smgiea-nanaea cleaning up the Fascist regime of the state police and becoming the governor or opening up a corner saloon or something like that. But Mr. Carroll leaves the role of unadulterated heroism to mix in robbing the state police and giving to, tne poor ana nnany to indulge in just plain robbing. William Elliott, as the pal of Mr. Carroll who keeps to the straight-and-narrow, takes away most of the acting honors. Elliott and Carroll have the fattest parts with very little left over for any one else. , "The Fabulous Texan" is just a Western movie no more, no less. You can take it or leave it. E...F. B, I J X?

In addition they will i present the authentic dances of the Cossack regiments, national : dances and the Cossack sword ! dances.
