Short about superstitions and how they affect everyday life. They also go into various things people do or use to protect themselves or predict the future (like Ouija boards and fortune tellers). There are some amusing dated facts here too--according to this many people have died because they pay wizards to cure them of illness instead of going to doctors! Silly short with insipid narration full of groaners. It takes a VERY condescending view of all this and seems to point out that people who do any of these things are utter idiots. Still it's fascinating to see as a historical document and it is only 8 minutes long. I give it a 6.
