Popeye, THE MOVIE!

Popeye the sailor is becoming a forgotten character. Soon he will be referred to as the “spinach guy” much like Gossamer is better know as “the big red monster”. I hope that isn’t the case, because one of the greatest, if not THE greatest cartoon-to-movies is Popeye. The film starred Robin Williams as the title character and Shelly Duvall as Olive Oyl. The cast played their characters spectacularly well. One of the best things about the film; the music. Harry Nilsson wrote much of the music. If I could purchase the soundtrack, I would.

If you haven’t seen this film, please do! Oh, and be on the look-out for many familiar faces (actors).
