  There Was A Crooked Man on DVD
  Stormin' Norman
  Unseen for over fifty years, this exceptionally rare feature sees comedy legend Norman Wisdom playing a na├»ve 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'. Costarring Alfred Marks and Susannah York, There Was a Crooked Man was directed by BAFTA nominated Stuart Burge from blacklisted screenwriter Reuben Ship.

This long sought-after comedy gem is featured here in a brand-new transfer from the best available elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio and is the first time There Was A Crooked Man is available on any home-entertainment format. On DVD for the first time: 8th May 2017.
