Norman Wisdom : TROUBLE IN STORE
Famously referred to as Charlie Chaplin’s “favourite clown”, the late great Norman Wisdom endeared himself to fans all over the world with his classic comic creation Norman Pitkin.
The first film in Wisdom's hugely successful slapstick series finds him working in the stock room of a large London department store and dreaming of becoming a window dresser. An ever lovable victim of his own clumsiness, all Norman's efforts result in chaos of the highest and most hilarious order. That is, until he meets spunky shopgirl Sally Wilson (Lana Morris), the girl of his dreams. Together they discover a plot to rob the store and set about foiling the robbers the only way they know how.
Wisdom's top notch comedic performance won him the Best Newcomer prize at the 1954 BAFTA Awards.
