I have to be honest and say I was never a great fan of Norman Wisdom, but I will admit that he was a good all round entertainer and he certainly worked to earn his money.
He was a bit too like an English Jerry Lewis for my liking, but saying that I saw him do a turn at La Dolce Vita in the early 70's and he was on stage for over an hour and didn't stop once. He did one of the most physically energetic acts I have ever seen performed live.
On the subjectof films where everyone gets hurt, I am currently avoiding all such films and TV stuff. There are plenty of nice movies where guns and violence and mass murder aren't the main themes, so I have decided to watch only those films for the foreseeable future. Pedro Almodvar films are also worth a watch. VM

It does seem to be getting into a habit that whenever the owner of a building doesn't get what he wants , then it burns down. Wonder if, when Cameron gets kicked out, the houses of parliament will go up in flames Mike
