M O O N M U L L I N S O t s t 09 Elvis Presley Ann-Margret Presley Tops Ann-Margret On NBC Special Night By KAY CAKDELLA We're still 511111111? as we write this review of the "Ann-Margret When You're Smiling" special on NBC last night, which followed a 90-minute more spectacular. Elvis Presley concert, because we were honestly amused by the whole hour. The singer-actress husband Roger Smith, who was billed as producer as well as lead writer, provided some pretty weak material for his wife to use in her brave comeback from her serious ' accident at Lake Tahoe. And maybe it's in the interest of marital bliss, or maybe just male chau-venism, that the shapely sex kitten always winds up surrounded by members of the Geritol set George Burns and Bob Hope. They claim to have discovered the voluptuous blonde but mother nature had a hand in stacking the cards in the star's direction, too. So bountiful are her gifts that talent, somehow, doesn't seem to matter much. Just as long as the sexy lady is poured into a dazzling dress and her blonde tresses fall excitingly around her head, reminding the world that life can be beautiful, we're usually satisfied. ' Even with this advantage, the lady approached disaster in the opening of her show taped at the Las Vegas Hilton. We're refer-; ring to her ill-advised trip : through the audience singing "Take a Little One-Step" and talking to people. She looked like she was tip toeing through the tulips on eggs. Turn for the Better "Hi! How are you? What's your name?" she squealed in a high-pitched baby voice that slipped gears now and then. One patron said: "My name is Ben Dorsey and I work for Charley Pride." And, before he could say more, he was up dancing with the star, whose movements at times suggested that her injuries are still chipping away at her confidence. The hour, fortunately, got better, not worse it couldn't and viewers who held on tight were treated to some unique special material from the singer. . "The Nights Are Six Months Long," with lyrics by Fred Ebb and music by Marvin Hamlisch, raised some amusing questions about what would happen In Lapland where the nights are six months long, such as an agent saying to a client, "Honey, I got you a one night stand in Lapland." Another, a song-and-dance number, "The Lady in Red," dramatizing the lady who betrayed John Dillinger, with original music and lyrics by Earl Brown, was a different concept, at least, and it gave the star a chance to be sexy in step-ins. She was best in a final med ley of songs about love "How Long Has This Been Going On? "I'm Going to Love You" and "I Don't Know Why." But the moments she talked to the audi- WMCA 570 WABC 770 WICC 600 WNYC 830 WVNJ 620 WCBS 880 WNBC 660 WPAT 830 WOR 710 WWDJ 970 WINS 1010 WHN 10S0 WHU 1100 WNEW 1 1 30 WLIB 1190 WFAS 1230 WGBB 1240 WADO 1280 WGLI 1 290 WVIP 1310 WEVO 1330 WPOW 1330 WBNX 1380 WNJR 1430 WBAB 1440 WVOX 1460 WHOM 1480 WTHE1520 WQXR 1560 WWRL 1600 MORNING News and information features (Continuous 5:00 a.m. WCBS News Radio 24 hours a day). 5:00 a.m. WABC Musicradio 77 (Continuous music 24 hours a day). 5:15 a.m. WOR John Gambling Show.

Lake so many otner stars today, she doesn t know when to drop the sweet little girl routine and become sophisticated. Elvis From Hawaii: Preceding this musical hour was the XsU(J special, tms: Aloha From Hawaii," produced by Marty Pasetta with true professionalism. For Elvis fans,, it had to be a night to remember. with the handsome, guitar-strum ming singer showing his profile frequently and looking like he landed from another planet in his white bejeweled jump suit. The concert, given for the Kui Lee Cancer Fund in Hawaii, and televised live via satellite to 40 countries around the world last January, effectively used mirrors and lights in the large auditorium (Honolulu International Center) to make the occasion stand out. As for Elvis, he's become a true showman. Quieted down, and using fewer tricks than when he was younger, he delivers a skillfully paced concert, mixing romantic ballads like "My Way," "111 Remember You" and "Welcome to My World," with stirring old rock favorites like "Hound Dog," "Steamroller Blues" and "Blue Suede Shoes" superbly. Blended into the contemporary bill were a few Hawaiian tunes, backed by beautiful location shots, luring weary mainlanders to our 50th state. And there were those moments when Elvis tossed a scarf to the audience, or let a young lady place a lei around his neck, which recalled the old Presley days. This, plus the lights flashing the singer's name in different languages, all added to the excitement. Presley was backed by four guitarists, a chorus and orchestra. He sang a total of 18 songs in- cludnig an American trilogy "Dixie," "Battle Hymn of the Republic" and "Hush Little Baby." It was all most impressive. TODAY'S PROGRAMS MORNING .
