JOYCE HABER A 'Jungle Book' ! for Youngsters That maker of movies for family viewing, the Walt j Disney Studio, will hold a viewing for the entire family J tonight. The world premiere of Disney's "Jungle Book," I taken from the Mowgli tales of Rudyard Kipling, will I bring celebrites and their children to Grauman's Chinese 1 Art Linkletter in profusion. So much so that Art Linkletter will interview-some of the stars' youngsters on a KTTV telecast before the opening, which b e n e f its, appropriately enough, the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Assn. Hollywood Blvd. will be a Disneyland of stars, with live reproductions of the famous animated characters, a marching "safari" band, real animals from the zoos, plus Louis Prima, Sam Butera and his Witnesses. A 5 p.m. screening will enable 1,500 of L.A.'s 'underprivileged children to see the animated feature -even before the celebrity crowd. Among those more fortunate children attending the plater, official debut will be the offspring of the Nick - (Janet Blair) Mayos, the Keith (Vera Miles) Larsens, the Jeffrey (Eva Marie Saint) Haydens, the Alan (Nancy Olson) Livingstons, the Fred (June Haver) MacMur-rays, the Joe (Carol Burnett) Hamiltons, the Sebastian Cabots, James Garners, Buddy Ebsens, Dean Jones, Dick Smothers, Charlton Hestons and Fess Parkers. Even Sterling Holloway, one of the voices over the Disney soundtrack, will be there with his two , godchildren. Album a Winner 1 eat every flowering shrub there is except the gorse; Sometimes I get luxuries like beet-root leaves, of course My life is much the same as that of any English horse: Why should I be a vegetarian? Music and lyric by Leslie Bricusse, interpretation by the greatest living suprapatterers, Anthony Newley and Rex Harrison; no wonder te original cast album of "Doctor Dolittle" is creeping up the charts like English ,ivy. Even though the movie won't be released until just ' before Christmas. The verse above is from "The Vegetarian," and you have only to imagine Rex Harrison, animal doctor, unable to consume meat because "as a matter of principle one must always try to avoid eating one's friends." And fancy the enchantment of the score. Optimists, or should say cynics, are predicting that "Midas Rex may enrich his already ample coffers by close to $1 million from royalties on the record. If so, it suggests that Rex Harrison drives as hard a bargain as Cary Grant, who takes the studio's share of his movies, like1 75 cc, and pays his star's salary to the studio, like 25. "Dolittle," then, should be a rich departure for Rex, who's back to his attractive, debonair self, now filming in Paris. He's chasing women, not animals or vegetables, In a double role in that wild French bedroom farce, "A Flea in Her Ear." Command Performance Bob Hope will appear at the Royal Command Performance in London on Nov. 13. The incomparable Robert is the first entertainer ever to be invited four 'times . . . Told that George Hamilton is starring in a Washington stock company version of "Funny Girl," Bob Newhart quipped, "Why not 'Bye Bye Birdie?'" . . . Phyllis Diller, who's always trying to outdo herself, wore a fur minidress made of 48 black-tipped white fox tails at her Flamingo opening in Las Vegas. Thrifty Diller plans to cut it in half and wear it as a cape when the engagement is over . . . Janet Leigh's a different kind of mannequin. She was taking compliments on her kicky plaid costume for the "One for My Baby" episode of The Danny Thomas Hour, when she proudly confided she'd bought it in the teen-age department at Joseph Magnin . . . Don Ho has a whopping new five-year plan at Duke Kahanamoku's nightclub in Honolulu. He gets $2.5 million in salary, plus a neat percentage of the profits, for 20-week annual appearances . . . Before taping his Nov. 13 television special, Frank Sinatra introduced himself to the NBC studio audience: "Hi, there, I'm Nancy's father" ... A spokesman for Random House claims that folk singer Rod McKuen's book of poetry, "Listen to the Warm," has broken the 30-year verse record formerly held by Walter Benton's "This Is My Beloved." McKuen's book sold 36,000 copies In a week, and is now in its fourth printing, for a total of 95,000 copies in circulation. Makes one wonder what Rod is writing for encores during breaks at the Troubadour, where he opened last night. Head Jazz Bill Duke Ellington, Tony Bennett, Shelly Manne, Marlena Shaw and MC Steve Allen head the jazz bill at Santa Monica Civic Auditorium tonight. The concert benefits the Transport a Child Foundation, which carries more than 300 children to public schools in Los Angeles. Our local program was the model for public busing in Boston, Minneapolis and San Mateo . . . Johnny Carson told his NBC Tonight show audience that the three richest men in or newly out of California are Gene Autry, Howard Hughes and Mayor Yorty's travel agent. 2 SHOWS TODAY-2:00 & 8:30 PM Every Evening at 8:30 "V Mats- Wed. 2 P.M.

DISNEY CARTOON Continued from First Pago voiced vultures, whose tones emanate from, among others, Chad Stuart of Chad and Jeremy) and Lord Tim Hudson, celebrated local disc jockey. With their eye-shrouding topknots, the singing vul-t u r e s are an ingenious stroke. Bagheera the friendly panther is, quite rightly, the rotund and dignified Sebastian Cabot of Check-mate fame. Kaa, the 'THE JUNGLE BOOK' A Walt Dlsnty presentation. Directed by Wolfgang Reltherman. Directing antlmatorj Milt Kanl, Frank Thomas, Ollle Johnston, John Louns-bery. Story by Larry Clemmons, Ralph Wright, Ken Anderson and Vance Gerry from the "Mowgli" stories by Rudyard Kipling. Music by George Bruns. Songs by Robert B. and Richard M. Sherman and Terry Gilkyson.

Shere Khan, the tiger who is the story's resident menace, is the incredibly suave George Sanders, whom the animators have made the tiger resemble in a subtle way. The use of the distinctive human personality to reinforce the animated characterization (which has served Hanna-Barbera notably well, as in Top Cat-Sgt. Bilko) has now, that is, enriched "The Jungle Book," and notably so. Indeed, with such zesty zoo-ish characters running and slithering about, Mowgli the Man-cub is hard put to keep the center of the stage, or the jungle. A curmudgeonly elder could even say that the film gets pretty slow when Mowgli is debating Tow PLAYING JSfft'PjC THRU sMRwfw SATURDAY iTS HOV. 4 Moliere's Comic Masterpiece ATTHF LINDY OPERA HOUSE "Energetic, Intelligent and Endowed with Theatrical Vitality!"

But nobody is likely to mind too much that the magic isn't fully sustained; the best moments have the old Disney inven-t i v e n e s s updated, and Dick and Bob Sherman have come up again with some spritely tunes, particularly Louie Prima's "I Wanna Be Like You." Terry Gilkyson wrote "Bare Necessities," a Phil Harris number and a very good one. "The Jungle Book," which has its premiere tonight at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood, is very, very good Disney indeed, and nobody needs to say a great deal more.
