Sir Norman Wisdom Signed Theatre Guide ‘Plays and Players’ from April 1958
Sir Norman Joseph Wisdom OBE February 1915 – 4 October 2010, was an English actor, comedian and singer-songwriter best known for a series of comedy films produced between 1953 and 1966 featuring his hapless on-screen character. Charlie Chaplin once referred to Wisdom as his “favourite clown”. Wisdom later forged a career on Broadway in New York and as a television actor, winning critical acclaim for his dramatic role of a dying cancer patient in the television play Going Gently in 1981. He toured Australia and South Africa. Wisdom gained 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. After the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, a hospice was named in his honour. In 1995 he was given the Freedom of the City of London and of Tirana. The same year he was appointed OBE.
This Theatre Guide ‘Plays and Players’ is from April 1958 and is personally signed by Norman Wisdom with a black permanent marker pen.
