In fact, clad in white tie and tails, with a dead-pan expression and the dignified stance of a serious musician, he is rather soberly impressive as he strides on stage toward his Steinway. Yet Victor Borge, who opened his latest "Comedy in Music" on Tuesday night at the Circle Star Theater in . San Carlos, is convulsively funny; with material that wouldn't get a chuckle if you or I were to deliver it. "Excuse my back," he remarks to one side of the arena theater.

And he heckles latecomers with droll courtesy and a worried frown. NO ACIDITY Yet his outlandish humor has no trace of acidity and his sharp wit is never wasted on anything blue or tasteless. And his suave, continental air is a wonderful contrast to his slapstick gyrations as he slips, slides and falls away from the piano, until' in desperation, he brings out seat belts to anchor him to the piano bench. And beyond all this, his music is delightful, whether he is playing Chopin's "Revolutionary Etude," ("I always play it at race riots") or wondering who FRIS. AND SATS AT 8:40 P.M.

Mtea mm m ."i m. i ii I ADULT FEATURE TOUCHABLES" The Burtons' Sandpiper By STANLEY EICHELBAUM Life can be beautiful and very adulterous in Big Sur, particularly when Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor are playing Adam-and-Eve lovers, innocently gravitating toward a tragic fall in a paradise of crashing surf and panoramic headlands below Monterey. "The Sandpiper," which opened yesterday at the New Royal, El Rey and Geneva Drive-In, is probably the best soap opera I've ever seen. It has been endowed by producer Martin Ransohoff with the breath - taking scenery of Big Sur and the expensive talent of the Burtons, who are always a joy to watch. TEAR-JERKER But in this instance of a spectacular tear - jerker about a beatnik painter's romance with an Episcopalian clergyman who happens to be married, the tritely - contrived story is rather difficult to digest. And the Burtons, who are unquestionably dynamic performers, deserve something more than a trying little tale of adultery that many will identify droolingly, no doubt with the stars' off-screen image. Miss Taylor is cast as a fancy pants non-conformist a noble savage with a Thoreau complex and a nine year - old illegitimate son. She communes with nature, lamenting the cor- Ists.F. 9 u -A' Hi rr- war iJ'a so f5?paw sv, t ill A J NT I L.

He therefore finds sympathy and a warm bed in the elegant, beachfront 1 l:i mm li.

Both declare themselves innocent of sin. And under the wide, open Big Sur sky, they are emancipated and free as the sandpipers they envy, until Eva Marie Saint, who is the minister's wife, discovers that something is not kosher. Despite a candidly - out-spoken and sensually-charged atmosphere, in which Miss Taylor's near-nudity figures prominently, the film offers nothing inspired or original. The dialogue by Dalton Trumbo and Michael Wilson (from a scenario by Ransohoff) is arch and phony, rambling into dusty philosophical corners to emphasize a lesson in be yourself individualism. Free yourself of convention, Miss Taylor seems to be saying (with a certain pretention), and you'll be as happy as the injured sandpiper that she nurses back to health. The stuffy and pompous minister who, quite incredibly, plunges overboard with the voluptuous artist, is portrayed by Burton with tame and wooden diffidence, as though he were SE1TJ aa JAMES BOND In me W3PtaiT7V.llffRTItffWrmj ROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE rZL mm bswch tmm maib'ik .JOHtNUHiWOOD e..umaBua ..HAfiSK SAiraWI-ltBEIfl II BBOCCOO Vitsaamjii.

VOLATILE ROLE Miss Taylor, on the other hand, does rather well with her volatile, anti-every-thing role. And she Is certainly as bewitching a beatnik as I've run across, her chubbiness notwithstanding. She does, of course, have the advantage of Irene Sharaff's stunning wardrobe what the well-dressed struggling painter will wear. I did wonder, however, how she managed her delightful pad, real-estate prices being what they are in Big Sur. -. Several bright performers surround the Burtons, though the cast is not appreciably aided by the fatigued and dragging pace of Vincente Minnelli's direction. Eva Marie Saint is nonetheless impressive as the jilted wife surely the most thankless role in dramatic annals. Torln Thatcher is commendably stern as a judge who orders Miss Taylor to send her son to Burton's school, little knowing what sparks he is indirectly kindling. A SCULPTOR As a sullen sculptor for whom Miss Taylor poses in the altogether, Charles Bronson Is properly waggish. Robert Webber shows spirit as a cad who once sent the heroine through art school And Morgan Mason (the young son of James Mason) contributes an unusually relaxed and engaging portrayal of Miss Taylor's nine year old. Ransohoff's production is as slick as the ladies' magazine in which the story belongs. And Milton Kras-uer's exciting color photography does full justice to the stupendous contours of Big Sur and the more famous curves of Miss Taylor. She gave men a taste of life that made them hunger for more!
