Norman Wisdom ‘True Star’ -Shane Ventura.

8 Oct

Sir Norman was one of those stars who went through life with no negative comments from any quarter that I am aware of. He was a consummate professional and a “True Star” particularly when compared to the jerks who populate the industry today.

His passing reminded me of an event back 1997 when I was working at a Television Studio in London. I was “Dubbing” one of Sir Norman’s old films…

…can’t remember the title but it was the one where he was helping an ambulance driver carry a lady, who was strapped to a stretcher, to the ambulance, and the stretcher flips over and she is being carried along facing down to the ground…

…I turned around and the whole technical crew in the VT area had stopped work and were in tears of laughter, A very memorable moment. He was a “Great Man” enough said.
