| Qualifies as a musical
Blondie Goes Latin is an odd one out of the Blondie series. On the one hand it has one of the stupidest plots in the entire series. On the other hand it's a nice musical treat with numbers by Tito Guizar, Ruth Terry and Penny Singleton herself. This is the only one of the Blondie series that could qualify as a musical.

The Bumsteads including Baby Dumpling and Daisy the Dog all go on a cruise courtesy of Mr. Dithers. I can't quite believe that Jonathan Hale craves the Bumstead company more than his wife, but each marriage is surely unique. But then Dagwood has to stay in the office to meet with an important client so Hale takes Penny Singleton, child, and dog without her husband. To top that off Arthur Lake is held up getting off the boat and takes refuge with Kirby Grant's Ship Orchestra and their singer Ruth Terry. Their drummer didn't make it so Lake pitches in on the drums.

These thing usually only happen to the Ricardos. I wonder if they ever ran into the Bumsteads?

The whole thing is too stupid to make this one of the better films in the Blondie series. But the musical numbers are nice and we get to see Arthur Lake in drag.
