There Was a Crooked Man... (1970)

18 12/25/1970 (US) Western 2h 3m

Of All the Crooked Men in All the Crooked West One of Them Was the Best!


Arizona Territorial Prison inmate Paris Pitman, Jr. is a schemer, a charmer, and quite popular among his fellow convicts — especially with $500,000 in stolen loot hidden away and a plan to escape and recover it. New warden Woodward Lopeman has other ideas about Pitman. Each man will have the tables turned on him.
