Popeye, Bluto and Olive Oyl are walking down the street when the lady sees an Army sign and says she wants a military man. Popeye and Bluto go to apply but are told there's only one position available so they show clips from previous movies to show their worth.
If you look at the number of Popeye shorts released in 1936 you might ask yourself why they needed another like this, which basically consists of footage from previous shorts. Throughout the series and especially once we got into the 1950s there were several films that were released that had a minute or so of new footage and then footage from previous films. This short is mildly entertaining but the clips from the earlier movies are so small that they really lose their impact so it's best that you watch them in their full form.
