Description

    Popeye the Sailor Meets Ali Baba's Forty Thieves (Paramount, 1937). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    During the late 1930s as Disney was preparing to release Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the Fleischer Brothers in association with Paramount decided to take their most valuable property, Popeye the Sailor, and produce three two-reel animated color shorts. These were quite a step above the standard one reel, black and white monthly shorts Popeye usually appeared in. This poster is from the second of the 17-minute shorts and was billed in many theaters as the main attraction. Popeye, Olive Oyl and Wimpy make their way to the Arabian desert to fight the menace of Abu Hassan (better recognized as Bluto) and his forty thieves. Paramount went all out on the publicity for these films, but surviving paper is very limited. Heritage has offered a half sheet and two window cards from this film, and is thrilled to present the highly elusive one sheet. It features a terrific image of a fury-filled Hassan bellowing above Popeye and his lady love. Touchup was applied to the folds, one pinhole in the bottom border, and pinholes in the top corners. Very Fine on Paper.
