BY LUCIE NKVILLE NEA Service Staft Correspondent HOLLYWOOD - stunt men are grumbling that a guy won't be able to earn an honest day's beating it directors and script writers keep phonying fights. They've long been accustomed to doing the rough work in bar-room brawls and ring bouts for stars who couldn't afford to get hurt, but now camera angles and sound are .beginning to double for the stunt-doubles. In -Reaching for the Sun," burly Albert Dekker and hard-fisted Joel McCrea have a no-holds- barred grudge fight in the street outside an automobile factory, but audiences won't see a blow-by- blow scene, except as reflected in the facial expressioas of Ellen Drew, waitress in a lunch wagon who has a counter seat at the light, On the set oi "Manpower," I saw "Sailor" Vincent — stooge and double for many .screen he-men —showing Marlene Dietrich how lo throw a punch. Even to the .sharp-eyed studio .gang, it looked and sounded like a stunner. The place that got the blow though, was the Sailor's left, shoulder °—' Jiits resoundingly with his ri«ht list while his left arm. made a straight jab that whizzed past Miss Dietrich's pointed chin. She caught, on in a couple of demon- stratioas and went- around practicing on everybody. Later, she'll use it on George Raft. Jimmy Cagney does a lot of his own film fighting —and between pictures keeps in trim by boxing but the script writers of "'Strawberry Blond" figured they could put more punch in it with this gag: show Cagney circling his opponent like a cocky bantam rooster, then cut to a barber shop where he's getting leech-first-aid for a black eye. MILLAND KNOCKS AHERNE TO CHINA In "Skylark" Ray Milland gives Brian Aherne one good straightaway blow thai knocks him out of camera range — to land unhurt, which audiences won't see. instead, there's a sound of a bodv crashing into a coffee table, load- ed with china, which has been seen earlier in the long shots A trick camera shot and somo makeup take the place of .slum- doubles in a night club brawl in "Tune Out for Rhythm." A fist seems to be coming straight into the camera lens, then audiences will see Rudy vallee, Allan Jenkins and Richard Lane — battered and bruised with makeup — easing themselves from the floor Nobddy figured that Anne Shirley need a double in a hailstorm sequence in "The Devil and Daniel Webster," because the hail — courtesy of the prop department — was composed of pearl tapioca, mothballs and white onions, but an onion caught her n f*M i\ ri »->y-l * t.. . nicely and peri-winkle blue GRANT'S CHECK FOR VVAK RKUEF Gary Grant for making The other gavo 3ii.s check for "Philadelphia Story" (.0 the fund, he got .so- much unkind criticism that he shut up and refused to explain anything.

This time, the actor said people could say what they pleased, but he'd like to make two things clear; AS with the first donation, none of the money will leave this country, and none will be used to buy combative materials.
