This movie has been rumored for years. Since 2004 to be exact. At one time, Tim Burton was directing. Last I heard it was suspended again. No production date set.

Frankly, I don't think it would be a very interesting movie unless heavily embellished. He was a cartoonist, mainly, and just knew who to pair up with. Most of the weird facts are due to an unsung researcher, Norbert Pearlroth. Now that guy was incredible....

Well, if you want to dash my hopes and dreams, sure.

I hear what you're saying, though. I don't know if it would be worth pursuing to movie houses.

I went to a "Ripley's Believe It Or Not" museum in Las Vegas when I was 15. What sticks out most in my mind is seeing a chastity belt for the first time...

There is also a museum in San Antonio that has an arcade before you go into the museum proper. A lot of young kids hang out there to score drugs and pretend to play video games so they can mooch the air conditioning.
