The man who Charlie Chaplin once described as his ‘Favourite Clown’, British comic actor and movie star Sir Norman Wisdom, died today at the age of 95.
He passed away at a nursing home on the Isle of Man on Monday. He had suffered a number of strokes in recent months and his health had begun to decline.
He featured in popular comedy films and TV shows from the 1950s and 60s including Trouble In Store, The Square Peg and On the Beat. He will be most remembered for for playing the hapless Norman Pitkin whose antics continually frustrated his boss and whose name generated the famous catchphrase “Mr Grimsdale!”
