Nightmare Alley (1947)
Rodney mentions the movie in which Tyrone Power played the Geek.
As an inspiration to documentary subject Joe Coleman.
The carnival shots are direct replicas of the carnival in this classic Film Noir that inspired Dylan's own "Ballad of a Thin Man," in particular the verse about the "geek"...later shots particularly in the "Mr. Jones" (Bruce Greenwood) sequence, set to Ballad of a Thin Man, replicate Tyrone Power's descent into madness and eventual "Geekdom".
Title on theater marquis during closing shot.
One of the 50 gold film reels you can find.
