WILMINGTON, Del. -- Not long ago, when Tony Curtis made his entrance in the stage musical version of Some Like It Hot, the actors heard a theatergoer loudly rouse his companion with the words: "Wake up! There he is!" If Curtis' fans are now "of a certain age," well, so is he. At 77, dressed for an afternoon of interviews in a black sweater and a pair of white cotton shorts and sandals, he still has the legs to pull off the drag role he originally played opposite Jack Lemmon in Billy Wilder's 1959 movie about a pair of male jazz musicians who join an all-girl band to hide out from the mob. This time, however, he's playing Osgood Fielding III, the lovestruck millionaire who falls for one of the guys in drag.

The Ravens signed free-agent tight end Tony Curtis on Tuesday and traded linebacker Prescott Burgess to the New England Patriots for a conditional seventh-round pick, the team said. Ravens coach John Harbaugh said on his weekly radio show Tuesday that it was hard to trade Burgess because of what he brought to the Ravens. "That was really tough because Prescott is a good player and he was playing well on special teams," Harbaugh said. "I think he worked as hard as anybody. He was physical against the run. "We had a roster spot we had to do something with because we signed Tony Curtis.

The 2002-2003 season at the Lyric Opera House will be a trip down memory lane, featuring return engagements of a number of Baltimore favorites, spiced up with a few newcomers to town, including Miss Saigon and Some Like It Hot, starring Tony Curtis. "Miss Saigon makes it certainly the most exciting season we've presented," said Nicholas A. Litrenta, president of Performing Arts Productions, which books the series. "I'm equally as excited about Some Like It Hot. It is a completely new musical featuring one of America's favorite stars.

SHUT UPPPPP!!!" Jamie Lee Curtis is not really telling you to shut up. She's just demonstrating the way a typical teen-age girl, like her character's daughter in Disney's Freaky Friday, would express her displeasure with ... oh, with everything. The 44-year-old actress is doing more than channeling her inner teen - she's reciting her dialogue. Her character, ultra-responsible therapist Tess, widowed and about to remarry, wakes up the morning before her wedding to discover that she has switched bodies with her rock-singing, rebellious daughter Anna (Lindsay Lohan)

"Thanksgiving DAY" is like a nice, shiny luxury car, equipped with all the options, that just happens to be missing its spark plugs. No matter how comfortable the seats, how fine the finish, the thing still won't start up and take you anywhere. Ultimately, it's just a very expensive piece of junk.So NBC's "Thanksgiving Day" has Mary Tyler Moore as appealing as ever, Tony Curtis crazier than ever, a promising arena in black comedy, an interesting idea in a wacky, dysfunctional family trying to make it through the holidays, but, despite all that, it never gets up and running.

It's true. They don't make them the way they used to. But that doesn't completely dispel the original impression that the 1960 ''Spartacus'' lumbered more than it shook. And adding an expunged five minutes (making a total of 197) to the restored version doesn't necessarily mean it is that much better.The film is big. The climactic battle scenes, employing some 8,000 soldiers, were shot in Spain, and this much is awesome. The final hour of the film, in fact, is absorbing, almost gripping, but there are those others hours to endure, and at times, they look like so much ''Hercules'' footage, despite the presence of some impressive names, among them Laurence Olivier, Kirk Douglas, Peter Ustinov, Charles Laughton, Jean Simmons and Tony Curtis.

The production of Cabaret that ran at the Mechanic Theatre two years ago was edgy and daring, an artistic triumph. The production of Cabaret running for the next three days at the Lyric Opera House is humdrum and uninspired, a major letdown. The difference between the two is an example in miniature of a troubling trend of the latter staging second-rate shows while charging first-rate ticket prices. Make no mistake - Cabaret (which traces the relationship between an English honky-tonk singer and an American writer in decadent, pre-Nazi Berlin)

I was 7 years old when I decided against a life of crime.My parents threw some cushions on the floor in the back seat of our 1957 fire-engine-red Oldsmobile, creating an area for me and my sister to play while traveling cross-country. A fair amount of my current infatuation with all that can be seen and known about life in America developed during summer excursions from motel to motel, diner to diner, state to state.It was somewhere in South Carolina or maybe Georgia -- the roadsides bordered by endless stretches of red clay baking in the hot sun -- where I saw one of the images that has stayed in my head for 35 years.

Dark comedy is very hard to pull off.If you want to know how hard, watch "Thanksgiving Day" at 9 tonight on WMAR-TV (Channel 2).The film starts off by missing the right tone and never comes near finding it. The problems are many. One of the biggest is Chicago disc jockey Jonathon Brandmeier, for whom this film is meant in part to be a showcase. Mainly it showcases his deficiencies as a comic actor."Thanksgiving Day" is about a dysfunctional family that gathers in its suburban Detroit home for the traditional holiday dinner.
