    Part #4: Fugitive


    As we move closer towards the end of this story, Popeye finds himself on the run and a wanted fugitive of all major federal law enforcement agencies. With this thought in mind, I thought it would be appropriate to use the “WANTED Poster” assignment as a basis for …

    In Popeye’s next part of his adventure, he encounters a major obstacle that was shaped in the form of a web assignment. How dangerous right?

At the time, these actors and actresses were primarily television stars and I think this movie was the one that set them off as somewhat household names. The only award this …
