Coney Island’s Strange World

No two words in the English language epitomize the world of the strange, weird and beautiful more than Coney Island. This week, Ripley’s looks at a couple of the Coney Island Marvels – world famous performers who have tread the boardwalk of Coney Island many times during their lives: Todd Robbins, who has eaten more than 4,000 glass light bulbs during his sideshow days speaks of his illustrious career. The Great Throwdini, world champion knife thrower, tells us that it really isn’t hard to find assistants. We visit the Believe It or Not! museum in Newport, Ore. and possibly learn the true identity of the real D.B. Cooper, and we hear of the tragic fate of a king who threw his first seven wives over a cliff to their deaths!
