With his flat cap, a suit two sizes too small, and a tear-jerking theme song “Don’t laugh at me, cause I’m a fool”, Norman was hugely popular with cinema and television audiences from the 1950s onwards, and made several Royal Variety performances. Perhaps strangely he was idolised in Albania! His extraordinary rise to fame is described on the back of these cards, the fronts of which are black and white photos of Norman in a variety of familiar poses. Size 68 x 36mm.
