    Popeye the Sailor: Learn Polikeness (Paramount, 1938). Fine on Linen. One Sheet (28" X 41.25").
    Offered here for the first time at Heritage, is another hard to find Popeye cartoon one sheet. This one is for Learn Polikeness from 1938. Olive Oyl takes Popeye to "Professor" Bluteau (of course, a phoney), to learn some manners - with hilarious results. These early Popeye cartoon sheets are extremely scarce as most theaters preferred to use stock one sheets for cartoon shorts, which they could reuse. After professional restoration, this poster no longer shows fold wear and separation, pinholes, a few tears, and small chips. The bottom and side borders had an approximately 0.5" trim that did not approach the printing, and the upper border had a sliver of paper loss along part of the top. The borders, the word "Popeye," and the white in the image have been airbrushed.

    Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
