    Fowl Play (Paramount, 1937). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Elzie Crisler Segar's salty sailor Popeye first appeared in the King Features comic strip in 1929, and instantly became a hit character. He was brought to the screen by Max and Dave Fleischer in 1933, with Jack Mercer voicing Popeye beginning in 1935. Mae Questel, of Betty Boop fame, is the hero's sweetheart Olive Oyl. Paper from the earliest Fleischer Studios shorts is always in high demand, and this one sheet is a stellar example. The storyline finds Popeye leaving a pet parrot, which he has trained to recite love poetry and sing "Shiver Me Timbers," with Olive Oyl, as he sets sail. Of course Bluto is around to cause mayhem and attempts to steal the parrot. This great poster shows pinholes in the corners, minor edge tears with a small tear at the top edge, and crossfold separations. The poster has been linen backed, but no other restoration has been done. These minor issues do not detract from the iconic image of the beloved Popeye. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
