    Description

    Popeye in "King of the Mardi Gras" (Paramount, 1935). Swedish One Sheet (23.5" X 35").
    Elzie Crisler Segar's beloved sailor man is once again the hero in this Paramount short which is set at a carnival where Popeye competes with the unscrupulous Bluto in a series of stunts to win the hand of Olive Oyl. These feats include sword swallowing, high diving, tap dancing, tight rope walking, and a terrific roller coaster chase for the grand finale. Produced at Fleischer Studios, Popeye was originally voiced by Billy Costello from 1933-35. This particular short marks the first time animator Jack Mercer was used as the voice of Popeye, and he would continue to play the character, and Wimpy, well into the 1970s. This rare and wonderful Swedish poster, with Popeye's Swedish name (Karl-Alfred) at the top, is in excellent condition and will make one lucky fan very happy. Very Fine+ on Linen.
