A gnome named gnorm 1990
A Gnome Named Gnorm (also known in some markets as Upworld) is a 1990 fantasy comedy film directed by Stan Winston and starring Anthony Michael Hall, Jerry Orbach and Claudia Christian.
Gnorm is just an average gnome, but he wants to impress the lady gnomes by doing something heroic. So he steals the gnomes' magic stones and exposes them to sunlight to recharge them. When he gets to the surface (gnomes live deep underground), he witnesses a murder and the killer ends up with his stones. Detective Casey (Hall), who was working a sting operation with the murdered man (another detective) is blamed for botching the sting, and causing the death. Wanting to catch the killer to clear his name, he teams up with Gnorm, whom he accidentally discovers. He is going to need Samantha's (Christian) help, but she thinks he is a nut. See, no one else knows about Gnorm.
