User Reviews

 
Watching this, you really feel sorry for Popeye.

This short revolves around a winning sweepstake ticket bought by Olive. Popeye winds up chasing all over town to retrieve it, with hilarious results. The scene where Popeye is pretending to read a newspaper while trying to figure out just how to get the ticket off a very statuesque young lady without getting slapped into next month is priceless. The ending of this just goes to prove that true love is a most problematic thing and surely Popeye must be in love, to go through all this for that payoff and not run like the wind far away from Ms. Oyl. The black and white print is better. Recommended.
