Very Good
Shoein' Hosses (1934)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Another highly entertaining Popeye short has Olive Oyl firing Wimpy from her blacksmith shop so Bluto and Popeye must show who's the toughest in order to get the job. The entire six-minutes of the film deals with the men in a competition to see who is the strongest and this leads to plenty of funny scenes. The highlight is when the two put horseshoes on a couple horses and Popeye does so by laying the shoes on the ground and throwing the horse on them. Another very funny sequence has the two men getting wheels together for a cart. Wimpy's small cameo also contains some nice laughs as he can't get away from his hamburgers long enough to work.
