Popeye creates his own nightmare here, but solves the mess in the end.
In this one, Popeye "teaches" Olive how to drive. I'm curious as to who taught Popeye, as he neglects to impart Important Rule # 1: Pay attention to the road when navigating any vehicle anywhere. It isn't that Olive is totally inattentive. She's just not attentive to minor trivialities-like steering or the traffic around her. The title here shouldn't be "Wimmin Hadn't Oughta Drive" but rather, "Don't Let Olive Oyl Have Control Over Anything More Complex To Operate Than a Toothpick". Though I must confess that Popeye is no great mental heavyweight either, as he permits Olive behind the wheel in the first place! Great sight gags make this loads of fun. Jack Mercer was as great as always and the ending is fittingly apropos. Worth seeking out and most recommended.
