    Popeye Stock Poster (Paramount, 1943). Rolled, Fine+. Stock One Sheet (27.25" X 41") and Studio Snipe (10" X 5.5").
    In the 1930s, Paramount Pictures began releasing animated shorts featuring E. C. Segar's Popeye the Sailor which were initially animated by the legendary Fleischer Studios. The character's popularity surged throughout the 1930s and into the 1940s, and in 1943 the first Technicolor shorts for Popeye were released by Paramount. Offered here is a red, white, and blue stock one sheet created to advertise the then-brand-new color versions of Popeye in theaters. Also included is a loose paper snipe advertising the 1949 short "Hot Air Aces" which could be pasted onto Popeye's muscled forearm on the poster. The snipe is unused, and it has a bit of airbrushing in its four corners addressing subtle corner creases. The poster is backed on linen, and touchup has addressed pinholes, small chips, paper lifts, fold separations, small tears, and creases. The borders have been partially airbrushed, and so has Popeye's arm where snipes were previously removed. The poster also has faint scuffs and smudges as well as light toning.
