The set from Robert Altman's film "Popeye," shot in Malta, was never fully struck, and remains on the island as a sort of misplaced relic.
Over 20 wooden structures were built with the tree trunks logs imported from Holland and wooden shingles brought in from Canada it was quite a large production. Eight tons of nails and 250 gallons of paint were used in constructing the set. A 250 foot breakwater was even built to protect the filming area from the high seas.
Interestingly rather then tearing it down, or leaving it abandoned, the islanders saw the set for what it was: a pre-built theme park. They simply took over the abandoned set, hired actors, and the Popeye Village was born. The park is currently closed for refurbishing.
