    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In New York, United States of America, we see 'The Cloisters', the new home of the Metropolitan Museum's collection of medieval art. The grounds are a reproduction of a 12th century Abbey garden. We see several relics that are housed here, including the 14th century tomb of the Spanish Count Amengol.

    We then see a new device that stops burst tyres from causing accidents - a hydraulic steering stabiliser. A car travels at speed along a racetrack when the tyre is burst by a shot. The driver holds his hands up in the air and the car drives straight ahead. (Location of events unknown.)

    At a circus we see an elephant turning the handle on a music box while two others walk round in a circle, holding onto each other's tails - it's quite horrible. An elephant walks along carrying a little foal in his mouth, then the elephants stand on their hind legs with their front legs on each other's backs. (Location of events unknown.)
