Storyline

Bluto muscles out Popeye to take Olive to the fair. Popeye rushes ahead and poses as a fortune teller, luring Olive in. He shows Olive her future (actually, her past) in the crystal ball: first, a clip of a mountain climbing sequence that culminates in Bluto assaulting Olive. Then, a clip from another amusement park showing strongman Bluto stealing Olive away to a roller-coaster while Popeye rings a strength-testing bell repeatedly. Olive, having seen this, no longer wants anything to do with Bluto and walks out. Bluto exposes Popeye and chases Olive into a Tunnel of Love; Popeye follows and trashes Bluto.

Once Again Takes Previous Shorts to Make This

The Crystal Brawl (1957)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Popeye and Olive Oyl are supposed to go on a date but Bluto tells her a lie and ends up taking her to the local fair. Once there they go to have their future told but what they don't realize is that it's Popeye telling it.

THE CRYSTAL BRAWL is another 1950's Popeye short where previous episodes are used to tell the story. This one here takes from two previous shorts and I've always said that it's hard to really enjoy them when they're edited and taken out of their original context. With that said, this here isn't too bad as there are a couple good fight scenes and some laughs. The highlight is certainly from the first short where we see Bluto chasing Olive Oyl up, down and through some mountains.
