Ripley: Believe It or Not

Ripley: Believe It or Not, an American Experience entry, is a fine presentation of life and especially on the life’s work of Robert Ripley, who despite the great success of his comic strip on oddities, remains relatively unknown to the public. The footage is great, the stories are fascinating, and although I don't say this often, the documentary, which clocks in at under an hour, is far too short and could have benefitted from a good 30-60 minutes more.
