Popeye (12-Dec-1980)

Director: Robert Altman

Writer: Jules Feiffer

Music and Lyrics by: Harry Nilsson

Producer: Robert Evans

Keywords: Musical Comedy, Comic Strip, Popeye

As Popeye searches for his father, in Sweethaven he meets and falls for Olive Oyl, who is inconveniently engaged to be married to the brute, Bluto. They adopt an abandoned baby, Swee'Pea. Live-action musical adaptation of the 1930s comic strip. Quick and sometimes mumbled dialogue; some may wish to turn on captions to catch everything. Filmed on the island of Malta.
