Storyline

Private Eye Popeye gets a call from Olive Oyl to guard a precious gem. But no sooner does he get the gem than the butler takes it (and Olive). The rest of the cartoon is spent chasing the crook to Paris, the Swiss Alps, and North Africa; Popeye always gets there first, but fails to make the arrest until he lucks into some spinach, of course. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Private Eye Popeye (1954)

** (out of 4)

Popeye is working as a private eye when he gets a call from Olive Oyl who wants him to protect a priceless jewel. Not long after the bad guy steals the jewel so Popeye must chase him across the world in order to get it back.

PRIVATE EYE POPEYE is a rather routine entry in the series and in the end it's really not a highlight. The film gets a little creative at the very end when Popeye punches the bad guy from one location to the next but everything leading up to this is rather routine and boring. There's no question that a lot more laughs were needed as there just aren't enough to keep the film moving at a nice pace.
