ISADOR MERELY FLICKED
HIS ENEMIES AWAY
Two uninvited guests did their best last night to wreck the Isador Goodman show on HSV7.
They plagued and irri- tated the pianist throughout his 15-
But not once did Good- man show on the screen that he was being harassed, non- stop-by two FLIES.
This was not unusual, be-
cause Isador Goodman al- ready has the reputation of being one of Melbourne's most nonchalant - and ef- fective-TV performers.
Last night-lie played si/.c/i diverse numbcqs as thc Chopin Waltz, a rhapsodised version of the hit tune, "If I Love You," and ' different types of boogie woogie.
I His witty introductory pat
ter to each selection gave the impression that he was thoroughly enjoying himself.
But after thc cameras had switched from him he ex ploded, "I'd have given any thing to have had a fiyspray handy.
"I WAS NEARLY DRIVEN MAD."
The only way he got re lief was by going through the motions of smoothing back his already meticu lously neat hair.
And it takes a lot to ruffle the pianist Neville Cardus in 1941 described as "Australia's best."
For instance, the only pre paration he makes .before going on TV is to spend about two minutes lightly powdering his chin . and cheeks and cracking his knuckles.
"Why should I worry," Darkly handsome Isador said. "All I have to do is imagine thc camera is an audience, then sit down and play.
"Thc cameramen have the hard part."
