DINING TIPS FOR travelers to
San Francisco are offered by
friends who recently returned from
a second honeymoon vacation . . .
"Prices can be gastronomical. On
our last night, we spent $20 at Can-
lis—all a la carte. But the service
was marvelous, by kimona-garbed
waitresses who each had her own
specialty—one to empty ashtrays,
another to pour water, another to
prepare dinner at the table. And
the food (I had charcoal-broiled
mahi mahi, a Polynesian fish) was
excellent. I'd say we got what we
paid for . . .
"ANOTHER PLACE, more rea-
sonably priced, but with marvelous
food, is Tarentino's on Fisherman's
Wharf. The waiter seemed thrilled
when I ordered Dover Sole en
Papillote, a specialty of the house
(Dover sole with mushrooms and
onions in white wine cream sauce,
cooked and served in a paper bag.)
I know why he was happy; it is
strictly gourmet fare . . . $3.50 on
the a la carte menu. My husband
had his first taste of abalone steak,
a California monopoly, and thought
the seafood was delicious.
"I ATE fish in San Francisco for
nine days, and never ate it the same
way twice! Besides the two above, I
had Salmon Teriyaki at Yamato's
Sukiyaki; Rex Sole Meuniere at
Veneto's (an Italian place which
boasts one of the largest doll col-
lections in the world); and Hali-
but Florentine with Mornay Sauce
at the Franciscan (a wharfside
place with fair-to-middling food,
but very interesting because all
the freighters passing through San
Francisco Bay are called off, along
with their destination and cargo.)
"WE ENJOYED breakfast at a
famous little place called Sears,
where 90 cents will buy 18 paper-
thin pancakes served with fresh,
whipped butter and maple syrup.
That pancake batter, the owners
claim, has been sold throughout
the world, and many notables like
to eat there. For an extra nickel,
you can get French toast made
with sourdough bread. One more
recommendation: David's on Geary
St., a delicatessen in the theater
district that rivals Lindy's of New
York in the cheese cake field and
offers a French pastry tray that
would turn a dieter into a scream-
"LOX AND CREAM cheese on a
bagel costs $1.85 (corned beef is
$1.45- and packed full), but to
our chagrin we discovered that
San Francisco bagels can't
measure up to Detroit bagels. The
water, you know. Needless to say,
if there weren't so many hills in
San Francisco we would have re-
turned five pounds heavier."

HOLLYWOOD—Jan Peerce, the
famed Metropolitan Opera star,
makes his feature film debut por-
traying the uncle of bridegroom
Richard Benjamin (who also bow::
on the screen with this picture) in
Paramount"s "Goodbye, Colurn-
bus," now on location in upstate
New York. To keep it in the family.
Larry Peerce (the tenor's son) will
direct the picture, his third as a
director. "Goodbye, Columbus," is
a contemporary love story about
young people, based on the novel
by Philip Roth, with screenplay
by Arnold Schulman.
Stage and television actor Rich-
ard Benjamin, a native of New
York City, starred this season with
his wife, Paula Prentiss, in the
television series, "He and She." He
was seen on Broadway in Neil Si-
mon's "The Star Spangled Girl"
and in the New York Shakespeare
Festival production of "As You
Like It" and "The Taming of the
Shrew." In 1965, Benjamin directed
the London stage presentation of
"Barefoot in the Park." In "Good-
bye, Columbus," Benjamin essays
the leading male role of Neil. Oth-
ers in the cast of Stanley Jaffe's
production, are Jack Klugman,
Nan Martin and Ali MacGraw.
ABRAHAM POLONSKY cur-
rently directs "Willie Boy," story
of the great 1909 manhunt, for
producer Philip A. Waxman at
Universal Studios. Robert Redford,
Katharine Ross, Robert Blake, Su-
san Clark and Barry Sullivan
share star billing. Director Po-
lonsky is determined to make the
picture as authentic as possible
and conducted a thorough search
of the Morongo Indian Reservation
near Banning, Calif. for a descen-
dant of the Boniface family to
play the brother of Miss Ross, who
portrays the Indian girl, Lola Boni-
face. For added authenticity much
of "Willie Boy" is being filmed on
the actual locales of the real-life
drama. Abraham Polonsky, Oscar-
winning screen writer of the late
1940s and early 1950s, responsible
for the scenarios to "Golden Ear-
rings," "Body and Soul," "Force of
Evil" and "I Can Get It for You
Wholesale," too long has been ab-
sent from the creative film-making
after the so-called Hollywood in-
vestigations of the Thomas Com-
mittee interrupted his career.

HENRY T. WEINSTEIN, the
portly executive producer of War-
ners' "The Madwoman of Chail-
lot," turned actor to play a night-
marish character in a dream se-
quence with Katharine Hepburn in
the movie now before the cameras
in Nice, France. Weinstein, a well-
known stage, film and television
producer, dons a wooly green top
to join other weighty atmosphere
players in the sequence. "'!'he Had

ture film, "Pussycat, Pussycat, I
Love You," for the veteran pro-
ducer's own CFK company which

Downtown at Adams
One of the most-talked about
movies of the decade, Truman Ca-
pote's "In Cold Blood," is now
showing exclusively at the Adams
Theater. The companion film is
"The Ambushers" starring Dean
Martin, Senta Berger, Janice Rule
and Beverly Adams.
Capote's best-selling book first
appeared as a series of articles in
The New Yorker Magazine, and
shortly thereafter was printed in
a condensed version in an issue of
Life Magazine. The book was a
spectacular best-seller when it was
published as a hard cover and
set new records as a paperback.
The film was written for the
screen and directed by Richard
