That's what Olive wants. To even the score, the boys visit Wimpy's barber shop. Wimpy is out, so they shave each other; you'd think Popeye would know better than to let Bluto at him with a razor.

A Close Shave
1 April 2016 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

A Clean Shaven Man (1936)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Popeye and Bluto are in Olive Oyl's restaurant where she's singing that she wants "A Clean Shaven Man." Both men are rather rough looking so they rush to the barber who is out so they decide to shave each other.

A CLEAN SHAVEN MAN is another gem from this era of Popeye shorts. There's a certain graceful flow that really just grabs your attention and takes you through the little journey where there's plenty of fighting as well as some funny lines. The title song itself is rather catchy and it certainly makes for some fun as you know Bluto will double-cross Popeye. Fans of the series will certainly have a good time with this one.
