    Background: FILM ACTRESS ELIZABETH TAYLOR AND HER HUSBAND RICHARD BURTON ARE ON LOCATION IN COTONOU, DAHOMEY, FILMING "THE COMEDIANS", BASES ON GRAHAM GREENE'S NOVEL. THE NOVEL IS CRITICAL OF THE REGIME IN HAITI OF PRESIDENT FRANCOIS DUVALIER, AND BECAUSE THERE WAS LITTLE CHANCE OF SHOOTING THE FILM IN HAITI, THE FILM UNIT WENT TO WEST AFRICA, WHERE THERE IS LANDSCAPE SIMILAR TO HAITI.

    OTHER ACTORS IN THE CAST ARE BRITISH STAR ALEC GUINNES AND AMERICAN STARS LILIAN GISH AND PAUL FORD.

    MARLON BRANDO, PRESENT AT THE MINISTERIAL RECEPTION FOR THE FILM/S A CAST, IS NOT IN THE FILM. HE ARRIVED IN DAHOMEY ON FRIDAY TO PRESENT MISS TAYLOR WITH THE BEST ACTRESS OF 1966 PRIZE, AWARDED HER BY THE UNITED STATES NATIONAL BOARD OF REVIEW OF MOTION PICTURES.
