Popeye – an inspired selection for our movies series. It’s hard to think of an aspect of the art of film that is not superb in Popeye: a great director on top form directing superb actors, the sets, colors, sound, songs . . . but I should quiet down and let Henry and Jonathan tell you about it.
If you have seen Popeye, I am sure you will enjoy our NOLAscape movie duo drilling down into it. And if you haven’t, I hope they inspire you to get access to a copy and see what you have been missing.
Popeye is not currently on Filmstruck, Amazon Prime, HBO or Netflix. You can rent it from Amazon video for $2.99 or $3.99. I bought it; I think it cost $8.99. With a film this delightful, a pleasure to watch all the way through or in parts over and over again, I’m sure I’ll get my money’s worth.
