Storyline

Mr. Ripley poses in front of a globe, introducing Leo Donnelly the narrator. Film clips (not unlike one the later "Unusual Occupations" series done with Paramount) feature impressive shots of 1932 New York City, one of the first "fat" men's clothing stores (no longer a novelty today), "No Man's Land" part of Europe where only the goats can claim "citizenship" and large Spanish pyramids of salt.

Believe It or Not (Second Series) #9 (1932)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

One of the weakest entries in the series has Robert L. Ripley standing in front of a globe as he introduces Leo Donnelly as the narrator of this episode. We then see some rather boring clips including three girls who bath elephants, one of the first stores for fat men, a part of land caught between Spain and Europe where only goats can live and a man in NYC who collects cigarette and cigar butts. This is an extremely weak episode for a number of reasons but the biggest has to be the actual clips shown. Perhaps that's why Ripley didn't stick around to introduce them as none of them are overly impressive in terms of their "believe it or not" factor. The only stuff that keeps this short going and worth seeing is for the early stuff showing off NYC during the early 30s.
