In tribute to Robin Williams (1951 - 2014) an old post:
(Belated entry to the Slapstick Marathon. Please note: plot discussed in close detail)
Robert Altman's Popeye opens with the tinny monophonic sound of The Sailor's Hornpipe segueing into Sammy Lerner's theme song (I'm Popeye the Sailor Man). We see the cartoon image of a ship's rear cabin, doors sliding open, the classic opening of many a Max Fleischer cartoon short; Popeye pops up, chuckles, exclaims (in stereo and in the voice of Jack Mercer, who played the sailor from 1935 to 1978):
"Hey what's this, one of Bluto's tricks?"
"I'm in the wrong movie!"
