| The Indispensable Man
The more I see of Blondie comedies it is clear that Dagwood Bumstead is one indispensable man working either for Jonathan Hale or Jerome Cowan as he is in Blondie's Secret. It's only at the very end does Blondie discover she has a secret and she persuades one of Dagwood's fellow employees that revealing it would cost him greatly.

I've been reviewing Blondie films of late and I was reminded today that I must remember that this is all based on a comic strip. Knowing that I can accept some of the surreal plot setting such as they have here.

The Bumsteads are finally going on vacation, one that Arthur Lake's boss Jerome Cowan has finally relented and is letting them have it. But hitches develop in a big project that Thurston Hall has given the firm and Lake is the only one it seems that can deal with it.

Which leaves Jerome Cowan to come up with some Lucy Ricardo like schemes to get Dagwood to stay. We also learn that there's a bigger sap than Dagwood working in his company, his friend Ollie played by Jack Rice.

Add to that Blondie gets involved with some counterfeiters quite innocently. Those are the basic ingredients in a film that might have influenced the zany style of Mel Brooks.

You'll have to see it to believe it.
