At the turn of the last century, a magician who travels with a small troupe comes to a little town where some of the prominent citizens are determined to expose him as a charlatan. The film combines elements of horror with a close look at the nature of performance.
The photos have various marginal pinholes, a few have marginal mends with archival paper on verso, each photo has an embossed censor blindstamp in the upper right (which you can only see if you hold the photo up to the light at just the right angle), one photo is lightly trimmed for publication, overall very good.
