Brutus is an egotistical French director making a film about Antony and Cleopatra, starring Popeye and Olive Oyl. Brutus would like to play the part of Antony himself, but Popeye's contract forbids it. Brutus decides the only way to get rid of Popeye is to get rid of Popeye. He forces his leading man to do a variety of dangerous stunts -- such as putting his head in a lion's mouth, braving a real sandstorm, using crocodiles as stepping stones, and worse. Popeye will need all his wits, and a can of spinach, to survive this production.

Brutus asks Popeye to be Hercules at the temple. He must have meant Samson the Biblical hero, not Hercules the demigod of Roman mythology. Samson from the Book of Judges was the one who brought down a temple. See more
