Follow A Star (1959)

Norman Truscott (Wisdom) is a meek and kindly trouser-presser at a cleaning shop with a nice voice who is duped into doing the crooning for has-been singer Vernon Carew (Jerry Desmonde) to lip-sync to.

But Norman wants to get a shot at being on stage himself and finds help from fearsome elocution teacher Dymphna Dobson (Hattie Jacques) and his wheelchair-bound friend, Judy (June Laverick).

When Norman is receiving tuition from Miss Dobson (Hattie Jacques) and Judy is giving a piano lesson to a young boy, the boy is Norman Wisdom’s real-life son Nick Wisdom.

She also gives a lesson to another child later in the film. This child is also Norman’s – his daughter, Jacqui Wisdom.
