Super Dave Osborne Films New Movie

April 15, 1998

LAS VEGAS (AP) _ For his next stunt, Super Dave Osborne will climb on top of a bus being driven by entertainer Ray Charles. At least, that’s what it will look like.

The daredevil comedian came to town to film scenes for his new movie ``Be The Man _ Super Dave,″ and tourists braved the chill to watch him work Monday night.

One scene had Super Dave performing one of his stunts atop a red, white and blue tour bus.

``Ray Charles is going to drive that bus,″ observer Jean McNamara promptly told her husband. ``But he’s blind,″ Robert McNamara said, evoking giggles from his wife.

Of course, Charles really didn’t drive the bus. It was pulled down Fremont Street by a truck.

In the movie, Super Dave comes to the rescue of a single mother struggling to care for her ill son. The film is due out in August.
