Warren William tells fortunes and tempts fate in this darkly cynical pre-Code jaw-dropper costarring Constance Cummings and Allen Jenkins. A smooth-talking conman, Chan Chandler (William) works the carny circuit as Chandra the Great, a turban-clad mystic who knows all and tells all, with the assistance of his shady pal, Frank (Jenkins). When he meets Sylvia, a small-town innocent who thinks his predictions are real, Chandler does the indecent thing and promptly marries the girl. But when she finally wises up and insists he go straight, Chandler heads to Park Avenue, where is phony act leads to murder, with Sylvia left holding the bag.
