Norman Wisdom

Norman Wisdom

(February 4, 1915 - October 4, 2010)
Sir Norman Joseph Wisdom was an English actor, comedian and singer-songwriter best known for a series of comedy films produced between 1953 and 1966 featuring his hapless onscreen character Norman Pitkin.

These films initially made more money than the James Bond film series. Wisdom gained a celebrity status in lands as far apart as South America, Iran and many Eastern Bloc countries, particularly in Albania, where his films were the only ones by Western actors permitted by Enver Hoxha to be shown. Charlie Chaplin once referred to Wisdom as his "favourite clown".
