I'm sorry too to have learned of him only now, but, unfortunately, worldwide success required both English language and Hollywood at those times.
Mr. Wisdom (I read his biography) enjoyed at least the diffusion of English language and the British Commonwealth market.
We also had a similar case in Italy with the great (for us) TotÚ, alias prince Antonio de Curtis, a neapolitan comic actor, comedian, poet, song writer who showed to be also a great dramatic actor at the end of his life, when he was free from too commercial movies obligations. He could be compared with the best and most famous comic characters, such as Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy.

Dear Cesare I guess this happens a lot when there is a language barrier to cross which is a great shame when you consider all the talented people that are out there.

Thank you dear GZ you are very kind:):)
