Follow A Star (1959)

Norman Truscott (Wisdom) is a meek and kindly tailor with a nice voice who is hired to do the crooning for a has-been singer to lip-sync to. But Norman wants to get a shot at being on stage himself and finds help from a resourceful music teacher and a handicapped girl.

June Laverick and Jerry Desmonde also star.

TRIVIA NOTE
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, Jaqui Wisdom.
