Funnily enough, there's a marvellous anecdote apparently related by Robin Williams when he was asked why he never directed. He feared having to say to an actor "I'm sorry, that wasn't very good", only to have said actor retort, "Well, what about Popeye?" This was from a book called Fiasco, which has an entire chapter about Popeye. I highly recommend it.
