There Was a Crooked Man DVD

| DVD

Unseen for over fifty years, this exceptionally rare feature sees comedy legend Norman Wisdom at his best playing a naïve explosives expert who finds himself involved with a criminal gang after uncovering nefarious dealings by a prominent industrialist! Hailed as one of Wisdom's finest films, it was one of two features he made independently, and marked a departure from his more familiar and endlessly popular comic creation, 'the Gump'. Co-starring Alfred Marks and Susannah York, There Was a Crooked Man was directed by the BAFTA-nominated Stuart Burge. SPECIAL FEATURES:...

Western directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz and starring Kirk Douglas, Henry Fonda and Hume Cronyn. Charming crook Paris Pitman (Douglas) is serving time for robbery in Arizona Territorial Prison, unable to get at the $500,000 he has stashed on the outside; but he does have a cunning plan for his escape. Newly appointed Warden Lopeman (Fonda) has a plan of his own however - he wants to use Pitman to rally and unify the other prisoners in the name of reform. Unfortunately for the two men, neither plan goes quite as intended.
