Believe It or Not (Second Series) #10 (1932)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

For the second film in a row Robert L. Ripley comes out and announces that Leo Donnelly is going to introduce the clips featured. The "believe it or not" footage includes an Indian who paints pictures upside down, the smallest house in the world, the cheapest house in the world, a gold course in Savanna that has trenches on it from the Civil War and wooden Indians who protect cigar stores. We then meet a dog from Philadelphia who was hit by a car and had its back legs paralyzed. The owner's made a special set of wheels that allow it to go on with life as if nothing had happened. We end things with a giant cemetery in New York that has nothing but dogs. This is yet another boring entry in the series, which was clearly running out of gas as even the creator had taken leave from it. The majority of the clips shown aren't overly interesting but another problem is Donnelly and the attempted humor that he tries to bring the film. The thing does pick up towards the end, although I'm sure most will find the pet cemetery thing rather depressing especially considering the music they're playing over the footage.
