The film was Trouble In Store, released in 1953, three years before I was born.
Norman Wisdom was one of the comedians from my childhood who never failed to make me smile, even though by today’s standards his antics would be considered silly.
Just because someone plays the fool or is always laughing doesn’t mean they don’t have a serious side. ‘Don’t Laugh at Me’ showed him in a new light to my young mind, and he remained one of my favourite actors/celebrities.
Norman Wisdom – Don’t Laugh At Me Lyrics
I know it’s true, yes I’m a fool
No-one seems to care
I’d give the world to share my life with someone
Who really loves me
I see them all falling in love
But my lucky star hides up above
Someday maybe my star will smile on me
Don’t laugh at me ’cause I’m a fool
I’m not good-looking, I’m not too smart
I may be foolish but I’ve got a heart
I love the flowers, I love the sun
But when I try to love the girls
They laugh at me and run
