Re: Should a new Popeye film see the light of day?
Sure. I would be game.
The 1933-1943 theatrical shorts collection (highly recommended) are excellent, and are still very much fun to watch to this day. If the film is anywhere near as entertaining, and creates some new fans of Popeye, it's a win-win.
