Comedic Spectacles

Any of you who have been into our store recently or who have been to the Oliver Goldsmith website, will have had the pleasure of viewing some of the most stunning photographs of 60’s and 70’s film stars in their Oliver Goldsmith specs and sunnies.  It seems that the Goldsmith family had it all sown up when it came to dressing the faces of the rich and famous back then…. John Lennon, Grace Kelly, Michael Caine, Peter Sellers and Audrey Hepburn to name a few.

Now we haven’t checked with Claire Goldsmith on this one, but here is one other British iconic spectacle wearer, from that era….who… to the best of our knowledge, is not part of the Goldsmith archive of famous spectacle wearers.  If anyone knows where Eric Morcambe got his specs from, can you email us please.
