Dream Walking, A (1934)

*** (out of 4)

Olive Oyl begins sleepwalking and heads for a construction site so Popeye and Bluto fight over who will get to save her. Here's a pretty good short that gets risen a few levels by the clever imagination from director Fleischer. The construction site is full of nice gags including a nice sequence where Popeye runs into Wimpy who is working as a watchman. Naturally, Wimpy is more interested in his hamburgers than anything else. The film has a terrific ending with Olive's reaction when she finally wakes up. Early in the film there's a scene with Olive in bed, which is surrounded by pictures of both Popeye and Bluto. This film must have been released before the Hayes Office really started pushing their moral issues on film and the "pre-code" era as this is something that wouldn't have been passed.
