Assault and Flattery (1956)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Judge Wimpy is hearing a case brought on by Bluto who claims that he was beaten by Popeye for no reason. We then see flashbacks to three previous films in the series.

The Popeye series has several films during the 1950s where very little new footage was made and instead stories were just built around previous films. This here is another case of that because this borrows footage from three different movie and builds them around the court story. For the most part this here is mildly entertaining but I always think it's better to watch the original shorts in their full glory. There are some minor laughs here but nothing too funny.
