Eye-filUng SPECTACLE (Disney's. By ROBERT Thrilling ACTION Tender ROMANCE 9 Dazzling COLOR Koto and Komedy. You hear about Andre Kostelanetz and that koto? No? Well, it goes like this. Good old Andre derided that on New Year's Eve he would conduct "Sea of the Spring" at Carnegie HalL This is a "work for koto and orchestra" by PI Featuring members of the WorM-FuDotu SADLER'S WELLS BALLET SYLVESTER "Saturday Night." -3 a Pi in pi PI PI the distinguished Japanese composer', Michio MiyagL So far, so good. Then Andre got into trouble. Seems there ain't any decent koto players in this neighborhood. Andre looked here, he looked there, he looked everywhere. No koto players worth their salt. But just as Andre was about to abandon "Sea of the Spring," he looked in the newspapers and discovered that S. Hurok has the Azuma Kabuki dancers here in town and the Kabuki boppers have a fellow named Shinichi Yuize. You never heard of Shinichi? Hell, man, he's the bestest koto picker in town. So Andre and "Sea of the Spring" and Michio Miyagi and Shinichi will all be at Carnegie for the big mm i i r. a concert. Shinichi will double between the Kabuki boppers (remember them?) and Carnegie. Also on the bill will be Hershey Kay 'a Merely a local production. Saturday must have been a fairly rough day for everybody, but particularly for Dorothy Collins, currently starring at the Copa-cabana. Miss Collin3 finished her Friday night chores at 2:30 A. got up at 10, rehearsed all day for "The Hit Parade" TV show, ran out" of rehearsals to do a Christmas hymn on the Rockefeller Center skating rink, did the TV show, did two Copa shows, and drove home to Manhasset, L. -where she finally caught up with ther husband, Ifaymond Scott, and her daughter, Debbie. Looked real nice through all of it, too. www Christmas is over for most of us, thanks, but an outfit called Previews, has some wonderful gift certificates. Previews will give you a gift certificate for a castle in Scotland, France or Switzerland. Previews will give you a certificate for a natural tunnel in Virginia. Want to give somebody an authentic Japanese castle in the Catskills of all places? Send $100,000. One may give a certificate for something really unusual, like a gold mine in Colorado. Previews gift certificates start at $6,900 for a mock Swiss chalet in New Hampshire and range all the way to a million-dollar island empire.

Film Offered At Trans-Lux By DOROTHY MASTERS J.i Along with the vast appeal evoked by a winsome boy and a condemned animal on the run, Walt Disney's "The Littlest Outlaw" is enhanced by its excellent camera record of Mexican scenics and moires. With the chase as its motivation, the Trans-Lux 52d St. presentation elects an orphan lad and a horse as quarry for the hunters. It is to save a thoroughbred Army mount from an unwarranted death sentence that little Pablito takes himself and the animal to heel, and their flight provides a variety of fascinating experiences, beginning1 in a barber shop. Most of these are highly suspenseful; most arej funny, as well. One instance is an encounter with thieves stuck in the wilds with a load of loot and no horsepower for the wagon. Later, both boy and horse are betrayed and locked into a boxcar for delivery to the authorities. Escaping that fate, they use the church as a sanctuary, lose each other for a time, and are finally reunited in a bull-ring, where they re mutu ally involved in a most courageous climax. Little Andres Velasquez does extremely well in his introduction to cinema, but the other players, accomplished veterans, are largely symbols. Although this is partly because they are background characters, it is mostly due, I think, to the fact that the dia logue doesn't ring true, either in wordage or delivery. In this so eloquently mimed, Disney might well have dispensed with same in favor of narration. The Littlest Outlaw," a Walt Disney Technicolor presentation, directed by Roberto Gavaldon and produced by Larry Lansburgh. The screenplay by Bill Walsh from a story by Lary Lansburgh.

It pained her when she turned and she didn't want to chance missing a performance. The MD duly gave her the proper remedy and in no time at all she was completely better. A few days later, in the dressing room, one of the chorines asked her why she spent money on a doctor. "When you were in his office, you notice all the medical books there? Well, the advice he gave you, you could have read in one of those books!" "You're correct," said the stripper, "but the doctor knows what page it's on.
