After a stirring rendition of "Unchained Melody," singer-sex symbol Engelbert Humperdinck closed his show last week in Thousand Oaks with a ritual his fans cherish. The English singer typically uses a red handkerchief to mop his brow during the show and at the end of the performance he awards the soggy souvenir to a member of the audience. He dispensed several such trophies at a private concert taped at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza for later rebroadcast in syndication.

As long as he can sing and dance, Engelbert Humperdinck says, he'll never turn 70 years old -- at least not in his heart. "I look at people who have turned 70 and I think I don't feel that way," the British crooner said with a laugh.

Parental Responsibility: A New York state appeals court has ruled that Engelbert Humperdinck can't be forced to visit the teen-age daughter he's never met.

Few would be overly excited to find out that Arnold Dorsey is coming to town. But Engelbert Humperdinck? That's another story.

It's bad enough when Engelbert Humperdinck looks in his closet. It's even worse when he talks to his lawyer. "I've got more paternity suits than leisure suits," the British singer said in an interview to be broadcast Monday on the syndicated "Joan Rivers Show." Humperdinck admitted that he has fooled around on his wife "a lot"--so much so that he feels bad about it. "I feel very sorry for my wife.

The National Enquirer is standing by its story that Engelbert Humperdinck is battling the AIDS virus--even though the entertainer has filed a $50 million-plus libel lawsuit against the tabloid over the story, which Humperdinck maintains is false.

I can understand why Robin Williams likes Eddie Izzard so much ("Allow Him to Digress," by Paul Brownfield, Sept. 6). Izzard's Engelbert Humperdinck bit is straight out of Lenny Bruce's routine about two agents watching a guy painting their office and wondering if they could make him a star. His name is Adolf Schickelgruber and Lenny, doing all of the voices with a German accent, riffs on making the name more acceptable for show business: "Adolf Schickel, Adolf Gruber, Adolf Hittel, Adolf Hit . . .
