Wednesday Evening, November 27, 1957. New Director Hails Fast Pace of Phil Silvers' Cast was feeling pretty NEW YORK (UP) - There was •a party going on the set of the .Phil Silvers show and everyone •A as out of uniform. Nineteen .•filmed shows were in the can and a six-week vacation had been declared. Everyone loose. Over at the buffet table, Pvt. Doberman was making eyes at the food. Cpl. Henshaw, clutching an empty glass, was trying to negotiate a refill. Pvt. Zimmerman was entertaining an appreciative audience with an impromptu routine. "Look around at this bunch," said Aaron Ruben, director of the CBS-TV series, "what a wonderful bunch to work 'with. They get along with each other, they work well together. But you know when they offered me this job early last summer, I had real doubts about working with this group. Big Shoes To Fill "There I was stepping into the .shoes of Nat Hiken — the creator, I writer, producer, director of the ' show. He had decided to pull out i and it's no secret there was trepi- i dation all around. Who could fol- : low Hiken? He's the greatest, a genius. "What's more I hari never even directed before. I'm a comedy writer — I've worked /or (he big , ones, C.aesar, Berle, Burns and Al'> len, Sam Levcnson, Danny Thom: as. Bu". Phil thought my background was an advantage. He felt : that the kind of guy they needed Was one who had appreciation for a script, who knew comedy." i Ruben grubbed a cigarette from one of the crew. He recalled with a shudder the first show he directed for the series. "It was in July and when I stepped out in front of that group it was like plunging into cold water," he said. "Resistance? No, you couldn't say there was resistance- to me. But let's put it this way — these guys had been turning cm one of TV's most successful shows for two years and they were.out to ] size me up. "By the end of the first two weeks I knew I had made it. And later, 1 learned why I had made | it—it was because the guys in jthis show began to sense what I | knew the value of the platoon, that ! I knew it wasn't just a star show. 1 ' Phil Sets Show's Pace "Phil is a brilliant performer. He illuminates everyone around him. He's fantastic. He sets the , pace of the show. But what many viewers probably don't appreciate is the balance the other guys and to Phil's performance. And when the guys knew that I saw it, that I wasn't out to schmear anybody, we were in." Ruben looked over at Doberman who was ogling the delicatessen delicacies again. Somebody asked where Phil Silvers was and somebody else said he had gone home, that he had a touch of flu. "You know the secret word on this show?" asked Duben, "I'll tell you — tempo. We knock off 60 pages of script in 25 minutes. That's quite a clip. "We had Kay Kendall — a tremendously talented woman — do a show with us and she was absolutely bewildered by our pace. 'But you all talk so fast,' she complained. It took her two days before she jould fall in with us. And I guess that's my biggest contribution to this show — keeping that tempo. "Have we succeeded? Is the show as good as Hiken's was? Well. . ." Two of the platoon members drifted over and said they were bugging out. They clapped Ruben on the back. "My. wife says you Ice-Pack Hint COLUMBUS, Ohio— A home Ice pack for treating aches and bruises can be made easily and without cost by using a plastic bag such as is used to wrap produce in the markets. The bags are waterproof and pliable. don't have to worry," said one of them, "she says she thinks we're even better this year than last." Ruben grinned a grin. A wide one. "I think we're doing pretty well, too," he said.
