Popeye and Bluto are both sweet on nurse Olive Oyl, but she won't let them anywhere near the hospital where she works. The only way to get past those hospital doors is to be seriously injured--so our heroes set about to incur enough bump and bruises to gain admittance. Trouble is, they're both too darn lucky and too darn musclebound to get hurt: A bull charges into Popeye and is instantly reduced to hamburger, Blutos crashes an airplane only to emerge unscatched, and so on. An amusing twist on the tried-and-true "Popeye the Sailor" formula caps this fast-paced entry, which was remade in 1945 as For Better or Nurse.
