Overlooked Films: POPEYE Meets SUPERMAN (sort of)

(This week's Overlooked Film comes to you a day early, because tomorrow I'll be celebrating the release of "Gambler's Don't Win" by W.T. Ballard, the latest in the new line of Black Mask eBooks.)

Back in the early '40s, these two heroes were both working out of Paramount Studios. Superman made his last film there in 1943 (reportedly due to high production costs), but his costume (along with some of his sountrack music) resurfaced in this 1944 Popeye cartoon, "She-Sick Sailors." Fun stuff.
