366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 293


The Date: July 19

The Movie: Popeye the Sailor Meets Ali Baba’s Forty Thieves (1937)

What Is It?: A short one today, but a stunning piece of animation from the Brothers Fleischer. They use their patented multiplane camera set up to create a 3-D effect that does not require those goofy (yet groovy) blue-red lenses. And Popeye is hilarious, always mumbling something bizarre under his breath.

Why Today?: On this day in 1883, producer Max Fleischer is born.
