Enjoy the trailer for the the 1981 comedy Carnival Magic directed by Al Adamson. In the film, Markov the Magnificent (Don Stewart, TV s Guiding Light, Knots Landing, Dragnet) is a talented conjurer … but his career is fading. Partnering with an über-intelligent simian sidekick, Alexander the Great ( Alex ), a chimp with the ability to speak, the duo quickly becomes a small-time circus biggest draw. But when jealousies arise, they must defeat a drunken rival and an evil doctor to stay together … and alive. From maverick B-movie director Al Adamson and featuring a parade of colorful carny folk portrayed by Regina Carrol (Doctor Dracula, Black Heat, Jessi s Girls), Jennifer Houlton (TV s The Doctors), Howard Segal (The Last Game) and more.
