The Dark Tower

1943

John Harlow
Director
Warner Brothers
Studio

Mysterious stranger changes the fortunes of a seedy circus. Of course, he has ulterior motives, though.

Enjoyable little B-film with noir overtones, with some excellent performances. Lyons may be top-billed, but this is Lom's film all the way. Too bad much of the rest is strictly routine. Would make an interesting double-bill with Circus of Horrors, with which this films has some affinity beyond the setting.
