AUSTIN (Mfnrt.) HERAtO, SATURDAY, JANUARY 10, 1959-7 LEARNS POP'S PLANS— Art Linkletter talks over his program plans with his WORLD LOVES BOO-BOO daughter, Dawn, and she probably has many helpful suggestions to make. TV Performers, They're Human! Make Mistakes Like We Others By CHARLES MERGER AP Television-Radio Writer NSW YORK (AP)—Many people admire polished performances, but the world loves a boo- Sullivan Show Nearly Ruined Act for Tybee What television needs is a school where they'd teach directors and producers how to handle dancers on their shows. -This is the request of Tybee Afra, a dancer who's been burned. "My act was almost ruined on •The Ed Sullivan Show,' " says the tall and lithe brunette. "Mario Lewis kept wanting to change the tempo, cut out important parts of the act and all that." Tybee's act, sometimes with and sometimes without a partner, is generally a smash in clubs. And she felt that its history of success should be enough so that TV directors would keep their hands off — at least, not do anything drastic to it. She says that television dancing is the easiest of all, because you only have to cope with the camera. In nightclubs or theaters, you have a live audience, and that means distractions. "You have to hold a live audience," she says. "I do it with a look on my face." Her figure doesn't hurt, either. boo. Television had its share in the year just past—and can look forward to more as long as people remain human. TV performers sometimes confide in close friends their most embarrassing moments on the air. But it took Jack Paar to rebroadcast his to the entire nation. Paar's memorable slip was the wayward commercial in which a medicine bottle blew its top and sprayed the entire panel of the TYBEE AFRA (and friend): Troubles with TV directors. JACK PAAR program. Paar's cover-up remark, as he dried his face: "I told you this was the most powerful pain remedy on the market." Shows New Trend By reshowing the kines of some of his booboos to his NBC-TV New Year's Eve show, Paar may have started a new programming'trend. There's certainly a backlog of material to draw from. There was, for example, the production of "Macbeth" in which a stage hand was caught on camera as he set up a cauldron and thereby became the play's fourth Diana Believes American TV Calm and Cool Diana Dors says that in the world of television production the Americans are far more calm, cool and collected than the British. Miss Dors who flew in the other day to appear next Sunday on the NBC-TV Steve Allen Show, commented on the differences in TV in her homeland and the United States. "Television here is much more relaxed and efficient than it is in Britain. Everybody's on the ball and not the least bit frantic. Probably it's because Americans have had more experience with TV. With us at home it's a newer medium and there's still a good deal of bother and excitement with it production-wise." witch. There also was the production in which an actor labored frantically to light a fire and finally gave up with a muttered "Damp wood!" Commonplace Goofs The most commonplace goofs are slips of the tongue. Nearly everybody has heard about the slip by a radio announcer of decades ago who said, "And now the President of the United States, Hoobert Herver." NBC commentator Chet Huntley was thinking of that slip when he introduced Herbert Hoover Jr.: "And now to the rostrum, where we'll hear Herbert Hever . . . Hoobert Hover , . . Hoober Hooper ... er, Her-vah . . . Herbert Hoover . T " " Cameras Not Off People frequently think the cameras are off them or the show ended .before the moment has arrived. At the end of the puppet show, "Art Carney Meets Peter and the Wolf," not long ago, a figure rose' and ran across the stage before fade-out. ABC President Oliver Treyze, watching the program, yelled, "Fire that man!" He couldn't, because the man was not an ABC employe. He was master puppeteer Bill Baird, who thought the show had ended. Cake Knocked Over On the "Today" show a cake was knocked over and the frosting ruined just before it was to be used on a commercial. A prop- man rushed out to a nearby drugstore, bought a container of foam shaving cream, and gave the cake a tasty-looking but soapy frosting. All would have been well if Dave Garroway had not taken an unrehearsed, unscripted bite. His grimace of disgust was seen across the country.
