First Look: Dark Pages Special Nightmare Alley issue

NightmareAlleyDark Pages’ year end extravaganzas have been big deals in the past, but this time DP founder/editor Karen has really outdone herself! She kindly let me choose the featured movie for this year’s theme issue and I went with NIGHTMARE ALLEY.

We were so lucky to have tons of interest which resulted in fantastic contributions, more than enough to make this issue a big 40-page collector’s item full of history, background, analysis,opinion, trivia, biography and great photos. Here are just some of the articles you’ll find in this issue (with links to those that have blogs):

I write on Tyrone Power’s performance and about director Edmund Goulding

review by Jacqueline of Film Noir Blonde,

plus loads of trivia, factoids and quizzes… I hardly need to sell this one any further, so if you have any interest at all in this fabulous film and this issue and all those great writers, then click right here to learn more about subscribing to DARK PAGES !  thanks everyone for contributing and making this a big success, and something special for the readers! cheers
