Title: The Marry-Go-Round
Running time (of viewed version): 7:58
Commercial DVD Availability: -
Synopsis: Love and murder and a washing machine.
Comments: Nice looking title card. Opening image; kinda looks like Bette Davis, but while she's ugly, she's not that ugly. I assume a Paramount star. Sig says Dottie. Maybe Dorothy Lamour? Tough looking whistling sailor. Don't ask don't tell: Shorty and Popeye kiss. Cool background iris transition that only transitions the background. Industrial danger music. My grandfather hated the wringers on washing machines for the same reason Popeye must have. French impression (Charles Boyer?). Odd but cool shot choice on eyes are limid pools. Olive hairection (which looks like a black Playboy bunny rotated 120 degrees counterclockwise). Olive apparently went to Drag U. Silhouette. Olive seems to have Deniro's southern accent from Cape Fear. Shorty has his lips on Olive's chest. And he has a tongue like a '39 Lantz heroine. Popeye apparently kills Olive and puts her corpse in the washing machine, and the year ends with Shorty bound and disgusted.
The last Famous, the last Popeye and the last cartoon overall for 1943. And it was sourced from YouTube.
