Norman Wisdom plays a shop worker (imaginatively also named Norman, as indeed is every character he has ever portrayed) who dreams of becoming a famous singer. His attempts are, of course, disastrous, until he is encouraged by music teacher Miss Dobson, and a crippled girl named Judy.
Following his rising star was just what Norman Wisdom's audience had been doing all through the 1950s and, by 1959, and after six films with director John Paddy Carstairs, it was time for a change. Hence Robert Asher made his directorial debut with Follow A Star, bringing with him his brother the distinguished cinematographer Jack Asher, best known for many of the finest Hammer horrors including that same year's The Mummy and The Hound of the Baskervilles. The plot is a comedy version of A Star is Born (1954), with Norman yet again playing a dreaming shop worker (as in Trouble in Store and Just my Luck), this time aspiring to singing stardom. Vernon Carew, Wisdom-regular Jerry Desmonde, is the fading singer who schemes to use Wisdom's talent to sustain his own rapidly failing career, while the girl is overlooked starlette June Laverick. Norman is surrounded by a particularly strong supporting cast, with Hattie Jacques returning from The Square Peg (1958), Richard Wattis, John Le Mesurier, Fenella Fielding, Ron Moody and, uncredited, future Bond villain Charles Grey. A typically entertaining Wisdom vehicle, but perhaps by now Norman was eager to try something a bit more ambitious, as his following film, There was a Crooked Man (1960) strongly suggests. --Gary S Dalkin --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
