Valentoon Week: Parlez Vous Woo (1956)

Well, blow me down! What better way to start off Valentoon week than with a little Popeye, eh, effendis?

In "Parlez Vous Woo", from 1956, Bluto (Jackson Beck) poses as a television star known simply as "The International" as a means of winning Olive away from Popeye. Of course, this ultimately will backfire, but half the fun is watching how it all unfolds.

Now, if they flipped things around and had "The International" be some hottie, would Popeye have dropped Olive like a bad habit that quickly? Hmmmmmm.

Rating: B-.
