Norman Wisdom became an instant movie star with the release of Trouble in Store in 1953 Playing a character called Norman he brought his familiar stage and television personality to the big screen as a young man with the ambition to become a window dresser in a major department store Ever lovable victim of his own clumsiness all Norman and 39;s efforts to improve himself result in chaos That is until he meets Sally (Lana Morris) the girl of his dreams Then things turn disastrous Costarring Margaret Rutherford Trouble in Store introduced Wisdom and 39;s self-penned song which would become his theme "Don and 39;t laugh at Me (and 39;cause I and 39;m a Fool)" The film became a massive box-office hit and won Wisdom a BAFTA Award Very much of its time admittedly it and 39;s still highly entertaining In 1956 the title of his latest film Up in the World accurately described Norman Wisdom and 39;s career This was the great British comedian and 39;s fourth hit in as many years this time finding himself employed as window cleaner to Lady Banderville (Ambrosine Phillpotts) Apart from having hundreds of windows to polish things would be going fine for Norman if it weren 39,t for the endless practical jokes played by Lady Banderville and 39;s son Sir Reginald (Michael Caridia) However when the irritating Reggie is kidnapped Norman has the chance to prove himself a hero and it just might impress his beautiful costar Maureen Swanson By now Wisdom was set on a winning formula working with much the same team as on his three previous smashes including Jerry Desmonde as Major Willoughby who had starred in both Trouble in Store (1953) and Man of the Moment (1955) Gary S Dalkin.
