Trivia

Director Kevin Powis, creates an amusing Hitchcockesque moment and makes a brief appearance in the movie. He can be seen as a customer in the coffee shop. The amusing part of this is he can be seen reading the script for the actual scene in which he appears. See more »

Goodbye Norman
10 December 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

*10/10 for Norman - the film deserves only 2/10*

Norman Wisdom will go down in history as being one of the best entertainers this country has ever had. He was a truly great man and I think everyone has a magic Norman moment that they will treasure. His films are magical and each one has true heart and humour.

Even in later life he was still bringing joy to people and this film shows that. He may not have any lines but you can still see the magic in his eyes in every shot.

A remarkable man who inspired millions. Rest in peace Sir Norman Wisdom

  • a true star.
