December 6, 1992 | JOHN ANDERSON and John Anderson is a staff writer for New York Newsday.
"I'm not an actor," Alan Swann cries. "I'm a movie star!!!" It's the most famous line from the 1982 film "My Favorite Year." And as delivered by Tim Curry--who plays the dissipated swashbuckler in Lincoln Center's new musical version--it takes on conversely ironic overtones: Curry, after all, has precisely the opposite problem.

Tim Curry, who returns to the role of King Arthur in "Monty Python's Spamalot" in London this fall, has been filling a very different role in Los Feliz. The English actor, known for starring in "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" (1975), has restored several houses in the area. This 1926 Mediterranean Italianate Revival estate, tucked below the Griffith Park Observatory on Nottingham Avenue, was refurbished by Curry in 2004.

That booming, chuckling, devilishly grinning farceur Tim Curry almost single-handedly gets ABC's "Over the Top" off to a rousing, rip-roaring launch. Flashing as many teeth as Batman's nemesis, the Joker, Curry is the commanding centerpiece of this new comedy about unemployed actor Simon Ferguson's tumultuous reunion with his hotel-operating former wife, Kate Martin, played by Annie Potts.

"Me and My Girl" is such a big wiseacre of a show that it risks being dismissed, especially when next to something like the hugely successful "Les Miserables," currently filling the Shubert Theatre in Century City with Sturm und Drang and tromping social relevance.

It is on about 1.5 acres of lush grounds and has three bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms in slightly more than 4,000 square feet. The home has hand-carved, hand-stenciled ceilings, a pool, an amphitheater, waterfalls and fountains.

Are the Muppets for kids anymore? Let's see. Gilbert & Sullivan-type songs with fast-and-witty lyrics. Characters with nearly unintelligible accents. Jokes about Miss Piggy's chronically dysfunctional love affairs as a pig who loves men who hate pigs. Though the movie tries--via explosions of gunpowder, sword fights and threats of gunplay--to reach children weaned on action films, some could barely keep their eyes open through all the singing and talking.
