• Short Summary

    A baby Anoa, Rome's Bread Museum and Ginger Rogers leaves her prints at Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    At Pretoria Zoo, South Africa, we see several shots of a baby Anoa - a type of buffalo from the East Indies - in a cage with his mother. He is very cute.

    In the Bread Museum of Rome in Italy we see shelf upon shelf containing row upon row of different shaped loaves of bread from all over the world. Examples of bread from New York, Chicago, Argentina, Mendoza, Senegal and Greece are among those seen. (Amazing! I wonder if it still exists?)

    In Hollywood, California, United States of America, we see various shots of beautiful film star / actress / dancer Ginger Rogers leaving her footprints and hand prints in the cement outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre. A crowd of people watch. She also signs her name in the wet cement block. C/U of Ginger's dainty white peep-toe shoe pressing into the cement.

    Cataloguer's note: Ginger Roger wrote in her autobiography that she wore shoes a few sizes too small for this occasion so that her footprints cast in stone would appear more dainty!
