A nice "gruesome" entry of this series: Robert Ripley shows a pretty blond a shrunken head and an iron execution chamber. Some lighter fare: floating steel and rocks, funny tombstone descriptions, a male "sewing circle", an armless sharpshooter and expert driver, a champion tire-roller, and an odd Moroccan cure for headaches.

Pretty weak entry in the series has Robert L. Ripley talking to a female reporter who wants to hear some of those "believe it or not" stories. We get to see the shrunken head of an Indian as well as an iron execution chamber, which was invented by the man who ended up being the first one killed in it. In North Carolina we find a hermit who has lived outside for over forty-years without ever getting a cold. Overseas we meet a sidewalk doctor who sucks the headache out of a person's head. We get more bizarre stories like these but none of them are overly interesting and for the most part this seven-minute short goes by very slowly. I'm not sure how much thought went into the "story build-up" of having the reporter actually interesting in what's going on but it adds nothing but then again, the actual stories here aren't too good either. There's a weird animated sequence with tombstones that say strange things on them but none of them are that funny.
