Village Set From The 1980 Popeye Movie Is Now A Fun Tourist Destination

The iconic look of that quaint seaside village featured prominently in the 1980 motion picture adaptation of Popeye makes it seem like a location from another time, but surprisingly it was built in Anchor Bay, Malta for the movie.

Designed by Wolf Kroeger, the elaborately detailed and fully functional set took a crew seven months to build, and when the filming was done they didn't have the heart to tear it down so they left it up for future generations to enjoy.

Today it's a popular tourist destination dubbed “Popeye Village”, where visitors can rub elbows with scrappy, spinach munching sailors and spindly-limbed dames named after cooking oil.
