Norman Hudis

Norman Hudis, born (1923-07-27) 27 July 1923 (ageĀ 88) in Stepney, England is a writer for film, theatre and TV and is most closely associated with the first six of the Carry On... film series, for which he wrote the screenplays. He started his writing career on a local newspaper, the Hampstead & Highgate Express. When World War II broke out Hudis joined the RAF and served in the Middle East writing for Air Force News. Like many other post-war writers his first foray into entertainment was writing for camp concerts. After the war Hudis decided to become a playwright, unfortunately only one of his plays Here Is The News met with critical success. This small success was enough to get him noticed by Pinewood Studios, who offered him a job as trainee screenwriter. During the two years he spent there he failed to get any of his screenplays into production. Hudis left Pinewood and became a freelance writer and was soon to become a prolific screenwriter of B movies during the 1950s. He was the writer for the biopic The Tommy Steele Story.
