TACE Section D The Sandpiper' With Burtons By R. H. GARDNER T KNOW if heresy, but Eliz 1 abeth Taylor would look bet ter with higher necklines. The burgeoning female torso, o fundamental to our Awieri-' ran way of life, is in her case a liability since, when overexposed, it gives her the appearance of being fat. As her girth grows, however, so grows her talent. Unlike the ethereal young nymph of "National Velvet." she exhibits in maturity a robustness that, transcending the purely physical, gives body to her spirit and the "spectator the feeling that, in the right role, she might overcome the handicap of glamour and prove to be a first-rate actress. That she has not yet attained this level of competence is indicated by "The Sandpiper," her latest film in which she plays a roje that is anything but right; but. despite the trap it represents, her performance has a substance about it that implies depths other than those revealed by her decolletage. A New Treatment The movie, premier attraction for the recently opened Trans-Lux Reisterslown Plaza, is a new treatment of the theme of "Rain." It concerns, that is to say, a free-thinking, free-loving young woman who seduces an ordained minister, with un- AMUSEMENTS TRANS-LUX A Rich, Rewarding Entertainment Experience for the Entire Family Now!

Richard Burton, whose two preceding films "Wight of the Iguana" and "Rocket" also cast him as clerics, plays the part as if he had been to the cloth born.

As it turns out, it is the lad's third offense, and the local jude, concluding that he needs more discipline than he is getting at home, assigns him over the mother's strenuous objections to an Episcopal school presided over hy Mr. Burton. Life In A Rut The school is of the expensive, neatly laid-out sort that serves as a hobby for a country-club set whose members look upon the handsome minister and his charming wife (Eva Marie Saint as mascots human symbols of their own exalted status rather than as guardians of their souls, Mr. Burton's life has, in other words, fallen into a rut of social artificiality and crass fund-raising when he encounters the real thing (life, man) in the notable shape of Miss Taylor. At first .he appears unmoved by her beauty, in the same way that he shows disapproval of her atheistic philosophy and noisome, bohemian friends. But then one night, while visiting her shack and being confronted with a nude statue of her carved by the most noxious of those friends, we suddenly hear him blurting out "I want you. I want you," and we know his doom is scaled. And so is the movie's. It's not only that the story, which look five writers working on different levels with different credits to compound, is phony from beginning to end, but the character Miss Taylor is obliged to portray defies belief. Superficial Effect On the one hand she is presented as a woman of inflexible intellectual and moral convictionsa bohemian in the true sense of the word. On the other hand, she is depicted as a voluptuous child who, time and again, has been victimized by men. It is as if the character of Madnlyn Murray has been blended with that of the late Marilyn Monroe a combination that I found impossible to swallow. Mr. Burton's was more acceptable, because it is actually a cliche but even here, despite his considerable dramatic proficiency and immense personal charm, the effect is superficial. And the direction hy Vinccnte Minnelli is'as superficial as the story. Indeed, the only powerful thing in "The Sandpiper" is the scenery.

At first "The Flight of the Thoenix" was announced as an all-male cast. To offset that, producer-director Robert Aldrich announced that trailers for the film would be made hy an international bevy of beauties speaking in their own language. Then came a scene where one of the male stars has a hallucination after a plane crash on the Sahara Desert. Aldrich figured that would be one way to get a girl in the adventure drama starring James Stewart, Richard Attenborough Tcler Finch, Hardy Kruger, Puniest Borgnine, Dan Duryea, Ian Batmen, Ronald Phaser, Christian Marquand, Gabriele Tinti, Alex Montoya and George Kennedy.
