RIP Norman Wisdom  Reply with quote  

You may not know who he was, but he was a national treasure in the UK. Many fond memories of watching his films. The best description of his film work I have (and it does him no justice) is to liken him to a British Jerry Lewis.

I've seen lots of Norman Wisdom films. And we had our own Norman take off in Indian Tamil films. He was a superstar.

This actor.

The comparison to Jerry Lewis seems apt.

I didn't know he was still alive. Moot point now.

For those who don't know him, this comedian was once very popular in Britain, Albania and those areas of East Germany where one couldn't receive West German TV stations for geographic reasons (basically, in the city of Dresden).
