THEATER

Good as Gold and what could be better? A new perhaps comedy written by John Patrick. Roddy Mcdowell, Paul Ford, Zero Mostel, and a carrot seem to be starred. Opens tonight at the Schubert.

The American Ballet Theater is floating very effectively across the stage of the monstrous barn across the river. For once miserable acoustics don't matter much. At the Opera House.

MUSIC

The Boston Symphony couldn't get Presley; they settled for Mozart. Munch is matador to a classical host of bulls: Mozart's Clarinet Concerto. The overture to Abduction from the Seraglio, and Strauss' Heldenleben. All seats are in the shade. At Symphony Hall, tonight at 8:30.

Gyorgy Sandor should be first rate as he conquers Beethoven (Hammerklavier), Bartok (Bundles of international dances from all sorts of risque places), and Bach (Toccata and Fugue in D minor). Sunday at 3:00, in Sanders.

Birdland Stars of '57 includes Billy Eckstine, Sarah Vaughn, and Count Basie in Dionysiac festivities. Sunday at 6:30 and 9:30 in Symphony Hall.

CINEMA

Lust for Life is still excellent and still at the Kenmore. Van Gogh gets exceptional color photography, and Kirk Douglas rarely gets in the way. Anastasia makes little out of a lovely thing, but Ingrid Bergman is superb. Helen Hayes and Yul Brynner wander in and out every now and then. At RKO Keith. The Great Man is dead. Long live his greatness? Jose Ferrer snoops around tensely, and says no. A tidy film. At the Beacon Hill. Baby Doll doesn't deserve all the publicity but contains three brilliant performances--by Eli Wallach, Karl Malden, and baby-blond newcomer Carrol Baker. Kazan's direction is outstanding, but Tennessee Williams' contributions to the film are weak. In the suburbs. The Rainmaker involves Lancaster, Hepburn (the elder), and drought in a mildly engaging evening. It rains, after a while. At The Saxon.

SPECTACLES

Rugby and Religion. The Reverend J.R.W. Stott has been packing them in, packing their souls, and packing them out. Tonight's lecture. "Where Will It End," is a climax of his series of speeches entitled, "What Think You Of Christ?" "Where Did It Begin?"
