Whatever Happened To...Joanna Cameron

I never knew what "zepher" was, as in the phrase: "Oh zephyr winds which blow on high, lift me now so I can fly."

And I didn't care.

What I did know, and did care about, was that Joanna Cameron was speaking the line.

You know.

The better half of the CBS team-up of The Secrets Of Isis and Shazam! aired from 1975 to 1977, and followed the adventures of a high school science teacher who could become a super hero. Cameron's character, Andrea Thomas, discovered a magical amulet that grants her the powers of super strength, the ability to fly, blah blah blah and yadda yadda yadda.


Have you seen the picture of this woman!?!

I didn't care what the hell her powers were. Just put on the cute white skirt, Isis, and stay on camera as long as you possibly can.

Isis ended in the Fall of '77. Cameron went on to do some TV guest spots, and starred in and directed
some movie shorts for the Navy.

And I spent a lot more time outside on Saturdays...

I loved the Isis and Shazaam shows.

Oh, was she a hottie!

Oh, mighty Isis!

That Shazaam boy wasn't shabby looking either.
