Age And Net Worth

Norman Never Cared About Money

Norman was a talented director who made terrific movies in Hollywood over the years. 

He always focused on making movies that focused on social and political issues of society. During his time in the entertainment industry, he made remarkable movies with great actors. 

In one of the interviews, Norman opened up that he had never made any action movies because he never got interested in them. 

As a director, making action movies was not a big deal for him, but he was not action-oriented and never got into making action movies. 

He knew those movies attracted more money, although it didn’t matter. 

So, he remained focused on political and social issues because it was something that he loved to do.

Norman, Being A Director 

Norman shared his story behind getting in the line of directing in an interview with The List

He said that becoming a director was an accident because he had never considered it. 

Before directing movies, he did live TV shows and many big specials. 

He appeared in several TV specials and worked with great people. When he was doing specials, he met Tony Curtis

He was busy rehearsing for his live TV show when Tony called him and asked him if he ever thought of doing movies. 

Tony loved Norman’s work on live TV, so he offered Norman the opportunity to direct the movie 40 Pounds of Trouble

Tony gave him the script, and Norman agreed to direct the movie, and that’s how Norman’s filmmaking career started.

Norman Was Impatient

Norman directed his first movie, 40 Pounds of Trouble, back in 1961.

When he began to work on the film, he was very new and young to filmmaking, so he didn’t know much about what he was doing. 

He even got bored initially because the setup took a long time. 

There was only one camera then, so setting up the shot took a long time. 

He didn’t deal with those things when he assisted in directing live shows, so he got impatient, too. 

He didn’t like how long it took to shoot a scene, and because of that, he used to say cut in the middle. 

He pre-edited the scenes in his mind and said to cut the middle, which he shouldn’t have done then. 

Luckily, some people helped him, and slowly, he learned to make movies.

Norman Was A Goy

Norman had made numerous movies throughout his career. 

Because of his name, Jewison, people always considered him Jewish, which he was not. 

He said that he had to keep on telling people that he was goy, a non-Jewish, which often surprised people. 

He was approached by the producers of the movie Fiddler on the Roof, and when he told them that he was goy, they were shocked. 

Despite being goy, he made the movie Fiddler based on Jewish impressively. 

He said that although he wasn’t Jewish, he had been with a Jewish family and took time to explore and learn about their cultures.
