Description by OLDIES.com:
CURIOSITIES #11 : Producer Walter Futter sent his camera crew around the globe to capture "bits of life that are hard to believe." This 1930 installment of Walter Futter's Curiosities shows us a monument to traitor Benedict Arnold, a "haunted" tractor handle that baffles scientists by exhibiting perpetual motion, a long-winded trumpeter that can sustain a note for seventeen minutes and much more.
THE MYSTERY CRASH: In the early 1960s, the National Safety Council produced a series of shorts attempting to teach viewers the techniques of defensive driving. Scores of automobiles piloted by crash-test dummies are wrecked as the cameras roll. We learn that, even with modern bumpers, driving into a tree at 45 mph will not result in a happy ending.
STRANGE AND UNUSUAL ANIMALS: Bizarre creatures from around the globe and the peculiar adaptations their species have developed through untold centuries of evolution are documented.
PARICUTIN VOLCANO: In 1945, the U.S. Air Force sent a team of scientists and cameramen to Mexico to study the active Paracutin Volcano. With the aid of a helicopter, they capture incredible footage of the molten crater and the ruined village of San Juan which has been destroyed by a sea of lava.
