| Blondie Hits the Jackpot was another hilarious entry in the series
This is the twenty-sixth in the Blondie movie series. Alexander is going on a date with a Louise Hutchins (Ann Carter) because Mr. Radcliffe wants to make a deal with her father, J.B. Hutchins (Lloyd Corrigan). Dagwood appears at his residence in time to see him "hit" his son and give it to him as a result! You can probably guess what happens after that. Anyway, this Louise turns out to be quite a brat especially since she has no mother. Oh, and let me just mention that Dag ends up doing literal construction work that does result in several building disasters but also...oh, watch the movie if you want to find out. Anyway, this was both funny (dig many silent scenes of Dag doing odd jobs with only the score playing) and touching (like when Blondie and Dagwood discuss both Alexander and Cookie out growing them with Blondie wistfully saying "There goes Baby Dumpling". Neither they nor the audience of the time would know that their offspring would never grow past the teen years in the comic strip!) Also hilarious was Dick Wessel as the new postman who's also in a pro football team. So on that note, Blondie Hits the Jackpot is another worthy entry in the series. P.S. This was Jerome Cowan's final stint in the series as Mr. Radcliffe. He'd continue to appear in various movies and TV shows until his death on January 24, 1972. Oh, and the fact that the father and daughter had the surname of Hutchins was amusing to me since a Will Hutchins ended up playing Dagwood in a short-lived TV series version of "Blondie" in the late '60s!
