Short Takes: Harry Potter, Jennifer Garner, Popeye
Global box office tallies for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix have now reached the $700-million mark. Why, one more matinee, and the flick'll have earned almost as much as I have for filling in for Mitovich all week. Jennifer Garner is in talks to join Kevin Kline on Broadway this fall in a revival of Cyrano de Bergerac. Hey, she can't possibly tank worse than Julia Roberts did. Olive Oyl's man yis what he yis, and we love 'im for it. So Warner Home Video and King Features Syndicate have put out a four-DVD collection called Popeye the Sailor, 1933-1938, Vol. 1. Suddenly, I have a hankering for a can of spinach. And a can of whupass, too.
