Crystal Ball-Buster

Into ball made of crystal he peers,
then paws his assistant and leers
This louse and magician
and lounge act patrician
at all that is innocent sneers

Vincent Price, Henry Fonda and Ann Dvorak in The Long Night (Anatole Litvak, 1947), an American remake of Le Jour se Lève (Marcel Carné, 1939). As nightclub magician Maximilian the Great, Price tries to make romantic rival Henry Fonda disappear. Look into our previous crystal ball limericks. Image source: Blue Ruins;
