Family Flicks Film Series: Popeye
Co-presented with UCLA Film & Television Archive

Brawny, spinach-eating sailor Popeye (Robin Williams) seeks his “Pappy” in the remote village of Sweethaven. As in always, he romances Olive Oyl and is menaced by a hulking Bluto. Familiar friends Wimpy and Swee’pea also make appearances in this rollicking musical. (1980, Dir. Robert Altman, 35mm, color, 114 min.)
