HOLLYWOOD—Any dissimilarity^ between the original "Rio Rita" and the version now being filmed is wholly i. intentional on the part of-Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. All the studio seems toj have retained of the musical romance 1 , are the title and three or four songs. : The additions include Abbott and Costello, a flock of Nazi agents, a fiesta in a Texas hotel and a plot involving code messages sung on thei radio. Also a monster washing mach- i ine in which Lou Costello has been i taking an awful beating the past week. After discovering these things I began composing a couple of mean cracks about the ruthless manner \ in which Hollywood mutilates good shows. "Rio Rita," as adapted to the; screen by RKO in 1929, was a swell) picture in rny recollection—but hazy i as to detail. So I looked up the story and am shocked and chastened by the discovery that it was terrible. At least, according to today's standards, it was pure corn. Much of the action took place on a big boat supposed to be plying the Rio Grande. Such a miracle of navigation would make Costello's current adventures in a wahsing machine seem commonplace. House Dick Cleaned Actually, the sequence is great fun to watch after one gets used to the anguish of the fat comedian. The set looks like something designed by| Joe Cook with the aid of Major Hoop- j le. Abbott and Costello, a couple of j hotel detectives, are being shased by the spies. Costello hides in a large; sack of laundry and a moment later) a workman gies it the old heave-hoi down a steep chute into a glass-sided! washing machine which is about eight feet square and 10 feet high. Abbott sees him there and, jumping up and down with excitment, steps on various control buttons set in a floor plate. Water flows into the tank and a massive, rubber-bladed agitator rises on a vertical shaft and begins to churn it. The comic is whirled and battered around mercilessly, manages to escape and climb part way up the chute then slips and goes back into the machine, this time straddling the agitator. It carries him to the top of the tank where he's alternately doused by a stream of soap and a powerful spray of water. This sort of thing goes on and on. I do know that this is the first time I ever saw a star showing a double how to do his stunts. Some of the faster action is dangerous enough to break a rib or arm, or at least bruise a man's face, so Costello is required by the studio to have a stunt double for those shots. He brought out his brother Pat, who's older but looks amazingly like Lou. Trouble is that Pat hasn't much knack for physical feats, while Lou— who once was a professional stunt man at Metro—is good at them. Horse Worse ' I asked if this is the toughest job the team ever had and they said no, not half as hard as "Ride 'Em Cowboy." "I like to got killed every day in that one," said Costello. "I'd never been on a horse before. "The worst ever, though, was when I was stunt man out here years ago and doubling for nn actor in a football sequence. When I went down, all 21 of the other players, great big guys, were to jump on me at once:. I had a depression just my size made in the ground and I was gonta fall into that. Only I missed it. And before I could yell, those bums were on me. I was squashed as flat as a paper doll; really busted up."
