Here's a cool example of what-goes-around-comes-around: In 1965, a British -made thriller called "Die! Die! My Darling!" hit the movie houses. This study in strangeness and sadism starred the indelibly foggy-voiced, deliciously irreverent Tallulah Bankhead in her last film. She plays Mrs. Trefoile, a religious fanatic who keeps a tight rein on her country house and her suspiciously loyal servants. Obsessed with the recent death of her son, Mrs. Trefoile is only too happy to welcome as a guest her son's former fiancee, the decidedly worldly Patricia Carroll.

When a lavish new production of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The King and I arrives at the Hippodrome next week -- its third stop on an 11-month national tour -- theater fans will have a chance to see the work of one of America's more prodigious actresses.

The ABC telecast of "The American Comedy Awards" ought to be good for a few laughs -- but other than that, if you want some good first-run entertainment, put on your sneakers and first run. TV's got very little to offer, except on cable.* "Hart to Hart: Secrets of the Hart" (9-11 p.m., Channel 11) -- Lionel Stander, whose long, blacklist-interrupted career was revived by the original "Hart to Hart" series, died two weeks after this latest "Hart to Hart" telemovie completed production. Not only does he appear here, but so do many other familiar faces: Marion Ross of "Happy Days," Jason Bateman of "The Hogan Family," Pat Morita of "Mr. T & Tina," and Michael Parks of "Then Came Bronson."

Double dribbles or double axels? Traveling or lutzing? Television has them all tonight, with basketball on CBS and figure skating on NBC.* "Figure Skating World Championships" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Nine days ago, NBC sent out a press release promoting its coverage of tonight's World Figure Skating Championships, televised on a delayed same-day basis from Japan. Five prime-time hours are earmarked for NBC's coverage, but the lineup is a little thinner than when NBC made its announcement March 16.

There's some bad news for fans of ABC's "Lois & Clark" and NBC's "seaQuest DSV." Although both new series are doing fairly well in ratings with young adults, one of them is probably not going to make it to the end of the year.The reason is the two networks have locked into a counterprogramming battle and each says it will not back off by moving its show out of the head-to-head matchup at 8 p.m. Sundays."We're not going to blink," Don Ohlmeyer, NBC West Coast president, said over the weekend.

One new series begins, an old one returns, and other shows offer eminently watchable installments.

Fox.* "George" (8:30-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- There are a few reasons to root for this sitcom, beginning with the fact that George Foreman, to borrow Bill Cosby's phrase, is a very funny fellow, and ending with the fact that the show, mirroring elements of Foreman's real-life activities and concerns, has him trying to inspire problem kids in an after-school program.

For Olympics watchers, tonight's biggest draw probably is the ice dancing compulsories, but the men's 1,000-meter speed skating is bound to provide the most drama. It's the last shot at these Olympics for American Dan Jansen to earn a medal.* "The 1994 Winter Olympic Games" (8-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- In addition to the sports named above, there's coverage of men's doubles luge.
