: 1 4 . Firl It-FtL, DEC 1. 1 Ml THE TV SCENE More Than One Did It Well BY CECIL SMITH At the end of "Victoria Regina," Queen Victoria remembers hearing some onlookers cry out to her during the procession that marked her Diamond Jubilee: "Go it, Old Girl, you've done it well!" One is almost inclined to use the same words for Julie Harris, 4 efi- Julie Harris ft :1 V portrait, less history than a warm and human study of a woman thrust by birth into a position of greatness. Yet we are more moved by the woman than by the crown she wore. " The "most telling scenes are those wherein she wooed and won Prince Albert was, first, the frightened princess talking of the man she wanted for a husband, next the glowing bride watching him shave, ' again the young mother to his child, then the jealous woman fearing his love, then the monarch afraid of his ambitions, finally the widow unable to accept his death. James Donald was brilliant as Albert. Attempted to Explain Producer-director George Schaefer surrounded his stars with a cast that etched unforgettable portraits , on the little screen. I particularly remember Pamela Brown as "the old cat," Victoria's mother; Basil Rath-. bone as Lord Beaconsfield and (Disraeli); Felix Ayl- mer as Lord Melbourne, the man who first told Vic-1 toria she was Queen; Barry Jones as a parson who tried to explain to her the story of Jonah and the j whale, and Isabel Jeans and Inga Swenson as two ' women of the court. Robert Hartung's adaptation was -perfect for television; the scenery and costumes of 4 Warren Clymer and Noel Taylor helped form the exquisite tapestry in which Miss Harris bloomed. g Bus Stop and Fabian 'I The controversial Bus Stop segment starring ;;Fabian, a baby-faced rock 'n' roll singer, is scheduled fto be shown Sunday night. The controversy arose :. ;when a tobacco company that sponsors Bus Stop re-; fused to sponsor this particular episode complaining that the' presence of Fabian would lure teen-agers to a show designed for adult viewing or some such gob- bledveook. Now ABC announces that the segment I-Will be, in part, sponsored by Warner Bros, to pro-irmote the new movie, "The Roman Spring of Mrs. .$tone," which is quite a switch inasmuch as Bus Stop "is produced by rival 20th Century-Fox. 'VVThe show, in which Fabian plays a wisecracking f ' teen-ager accused of murder, has undergone a change :.6t title during the controversy it was called "Told f ''by an Idiot"; now the title is "A Lion Walks Among ; ps." Of course, if Fabian acts no better than he sings, " the entire matter is academic. v , I RECOMMENDED TONIGHT -The first of the season's Young People's Concerts with Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic. It deals with 'i9th century French impressionist music as illustrated v'by Debussy and Ravel (Channel 2 at 7:30). i Previews of X ounj reopie s concerts.

Dinah Shore, KRCA (4), 9:30 p.m. (Color) Dinah's guest list is impressive tonight Nelson t Eddy, Frankie Avalon laj Snjrlta CimtJ 2 who gave a superb per- formance as Victoria in Hallmark Hall of Farhe's production of the play on NBC Thursday night. This production was a rich and delicately woven tapestry that gave television its most rewarding 90 minutes of the season. And, in color, it was a tapestry of great beauty. The play, wrought from Laurence Houseman's biographical sketches of the 64-year reign of the doughty English Queen, was less drama than romantic Today's TV and Milton Berle. Mr. Eddy will give us another rendition of "Short'n-in' Bread." The Twilight Zone, KNXT (2), 10 p.m. "The Jungle."
