| Dagwood off to the hounds
It's A Great Life is yet another chapter in the further adventures of the Bumstead family. Arthur Lake does it again, while his carpet is being shampooed and the kids are contributing to the usual din in the Bumstead household, Lake mistakes instructions from his boss Jonathan Hale and buys a horse instead of a house. Not just any horse but English steeplechase horse that's seen better days. What are the chances of going to a man with both a horse and a house for sale. But if it was possible Dagwood would find him.

But there's another guy who might want the horse an eccentric millionaire played by Hugh Herbert and that's more than a redundancy. Of all a sudden that pinto steeplechaser from Great Britain takes on an unexpected value.

The final scene is a fox hunt and the inexperienced Dagwood is quite a sight on the horse. And the usual does happen when a skunk gets into the fox hunt.

Arthur Lake on the horse is reason enough to watch this Blondie series film.
