There Was a Crooked Dan

His distortion is bodily and facial
The back portion is oddly palatial
Who'll sport humps on his shoulders,
Giant lumps big as boulders?
That contortionist, J. Carroll Naish'll!

David Cairns

Character actor J Carrol Naish (who cares if he pronounced it "Nash") plays Daniel the hunchback in House of Frankenstein (1944). Here's more on Naish, “the man of a thousand races”, at Movie Morlocks.
