Yet another piece of my innocent childhood fell off . The line is getting shorter...

Never increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything.

در سال ۱۳۴۹،وقتی‌ که قرار بود سینما مولن روژ را دوباره بعد از بازسازی افتتاح کنند،کمپانی انگلیسی‌ تییمز ایشان را به همراه چند هنرمند دیگر به تهران آورد..چه غلغله یی شده بود و این مرحوم بسیار تحت تاثیر پایتخت ایران زمین و مردمانش قرار گرفته بود.

با ایشان بزرگ شدیم و مرحوم شازده دایی جانم،فیلمهای پروجکشن ایشان را برای ما در باغ به نمایش میگذاشت.

خدا ایشان را رحمت کند و عاقبت ما را به خیر.

He was the guest for one of the Cheshmak program that was hosted by Googoosh. That was when I saw him first. He was so funny.

Roohash Shad ...

by Darius Kadivar on

Forgive my ignorance but I had never heard of him ...

I guess it must have aired in Tehran and Not Shiraz at the time ... Although I must have come across one of these episodes when I visited my cousins in Tehran.

He reminds me a little of an English version of Jerry Lewis

A Legend

by Farah Rusta on

The name Norman Wisdom is synonymous with some of the most treasured childhood memories of many generations of Iranian children, myself included. He brought laughter and meriment to many lives, adults and children alike. This is how I shall always remember him: Trouble in Store (janjaal dar forooshgaah). May God Bless his beautiful soul.
