Demanding that Popeye learn to behave like a gentleman, Olive forces him to enroll in the school of etiquette run by "Professor Bluteau" (Its motto: "For a Little Dough You Can Be Well Bred"). What Olive doesn't know (but the audience does) is that the Professor is a phony, and that his school is a racket. Only when the smooth-talking "Bluteau" tries to get fresh with Olive does Popeye turn the tables and teach the Professor a few lessons with his fists. The best scene occurs at the beginning, where, after an elaborate "3-D" tour of the Professor's penthouse headquarters, we find the proprietor lounging around in his stocking feet, munching a banana and reading a cheap detective novel.
