Robert Bernard Altman (1925-2006) was a renowned American film director and writer know for his various films: MASH, Popeye, Vincent & Theo, The Player, Dr. T & the Women and Gosford Park, among others.

Altman was already a veteran director when his feature film adaptation of Popeye was released in 1980. He sought to bring the characters closer to the spirit of E. C. Segar's original Thimble Theatre comic strip, and so many of its more obscure characters appear, although more mainstream elements such as the sailor's reliance on spinach for a strength boost were also included. Popeye was reasonably successful at the box office, however, its critical reception was mixed. Altman mantained a somewhat lower profile following this film, although he enjoyed a career resurgence beginning in the 1990s.
