Power’s career went on hold as UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo rolled in, and he enlisted in the Marine Corps. He came back to the silver screen in 1946 with ''Film/TheRazorsEdge'', and an exception to his light fare, ''Film/NightmareAlley''. Power had to fight to get the latter role because Zanuck thought his image would be tarnished by such a dark role. But Power managed to convince Zanuck, and the role turned into one of Power’s favourite performances and his best-reviewed film, although it didn’t do well in the box office or make Zanuck very happy.
