Austin Film Society presents Sunday School: Popeye
Robin Williams brings a shy sweetness to his version of Popeye as a son in search of his long-lost father. Shelly Duval plays the role of Olive Oyl. Altman shot the film on the island of Malta where he constructed the village of Sweethaven, far from the prying eyes of producers and studio bigwigs. The plot is familiar and yet almost nonexistent, the soundtrack is by Harry Nilsson and there’s a climatic wrestling match with an octopus.
