First-Rate Entry
Dagwood! Dagwood! Watch out!! That feather in Blondie's 1930's hat is going to stab you!

Great entry in the popular series. The laughs seldom let up, nor does the action. Expert comedic timing from director Strayer along with versatile cast. Seems Dagwood 'quits'-- oops, I mean 'resigns'-- his job when he doesn't get his awaited vacation. So who does Dithers hire in his place. Why Blondie, of course, which angers breadwinner daddy. Now they're going separate ways, while things aren't helped by romantic mix-ups, especially when Dad goes fishing and Mom gets her own office. But, oh my gosh, will they ever get back together. And what will Baby Dumpling and Daisy do now. Stay tuned.

I wish I knew how off-camera coaches got dog Daisy and 4-year old Dumpling (Simms) to perform as well as they do. Check out how expertly each brings off their various tricks. I hope Daisy got extra kibbles. Then too, check out the nostalgic jitterbug contest defying gravity's laws. I hope the youngsters got extra bottles of Pepsi. Anyway, an addled Dagwood and a nonplussed Blondie keep the chuckles coming, showing why Lake and Singleton remain a truly inspired pairing. In my view, there's more comedy delight here than in most star-studded efforts of the 1950's, especially. Meanwhile, postmen, Look Out! The one man stampede is coming your way.
