If you're an admirer of the Surrealist art of American expatriate Man Ray (1890-1976), tonight's installment of PBS' "American Masters" offers a thorough, often engaging overview of the artist's long life. Produced and directed by Mel Stuart, who first filmed a conversation with the artist almost 40 years ago, "Man Ray: Prophet of the Avant-Garde" was written by Man Ray biographer Neil Baldwin and is narrated by actress Stockard Channing.

You know those signs demonstrators hold up: "Honk if you love. . . ." As much could be said for "American Masters' " first show of the season, an adulatory love fest called "Helen Hayes: First Lady of the American Theatre" (tonight at 10 on Channel 28; 9 p.m. on Channel 15 and Tuesday at 9 p.m. on Channel 50). It's not that Hayes hasn't lived up to the advertising, but that the show is so undeviatingly formulaic.

There are comedians, there are comic actors and, in a class by themselves, there are the great clowns. Chaplin and Keaton come to mind at once, and a strong case can be made that Danny Kaye was the last of the great clowns in our time. (Kaye died in 1987 at the age of 74.) "Danny Kaye: A Legacy of Laughter," an "American Masters" biography airing Sunday at 7:30 p.m. on KCET, makes wonderfully clear why he was indeed a great clown.

When Leonard Stein titled his latest Piano Spheres program "Three American Masters," he did so with perfect appropriateness. As musicians move into the next century, the keyboard works of Charles Ives, Carl Ruggles and Roger Sessions ought to be, if not part of their functional repertories, at least a strong element in their background and thinking.

Susan Lacy, creator and executive producer of PBS' "American Masters" series, gives viewers a rare look at pop culture impresario David Geffen in her documentary "Inventing David Geffen," which premieres Tuesday. As the creator and executive producer of "American Masters," why did you choose to make the David Geffen doc? Because you don't make all of them. This is probably the eighth film I've directed. I do have final cut on all our films. After about 10 years of doing the series, I'd spent so much time in edit rooms, I said, finally just do one on your own. And I'm very interested in music.
