In this classic "high-and-dizzy" Popeye cartoon, Olive Oyl goes sleepwalking in the middle of the night, climbing out of her apartment window and onto the skeleton of a skyscraper under construction. Certain that the slumbering Olive will plummet to her doom at any moment, Popeye and Bluto rush to her rescue--nearly killing one another in the process. The cartoon's best line goes to Wimpy, cast as a sublimely indifferent night watchman. Virtually all of the sight gags are brilliantly timed to the rhythmic beat of the title song, originally penned by Mack Gordon and Harry Revel for the 1933 movie musical Sitting Pretty.
