In the space of a little over a decade, a couple dozen Blondie and Dagwood films were made. Obviously, they were very popular B-movies and after having seen quite a few of them I can understand why. They were fun little pictures...with likable characters and stories. Plus, they managed to have the same three actors play their roles...and you get to see Baby Dumpling go from early childhood to his teenage years...something very unique for any series of films.
Here in "Blondie Takes a Vacation", the story picks up exactly where it left off in the previous film. The Bumsteads FINALLY get to go on the vacation they were supposed to take in "Blondie Meets the Boss". However, as you'd expect, the family's trip turns out to bring all sorts of surprises. First, on the train they meet up with a very nasty guy. And, when they arrive at their hotel, they find this same guy is the owner...Mr. Morton (Donald McBride...who made a career out of playing grouches!). Morton is a spiteful guy and refuses to honor their reservation and so they are forced to stay in the only other hotel...a place that is practically deserted. Why? Because Morton's been working hard to destroy his competition and stands to cheat these nice people out of their hotel. As a result, Blondie and Dagwood promise to help them try to make a go of it.
The best part of the film is how Baby Dumpling manages to do so much to help the good guys...and so much to destroy bad Mr. Morton! I especially liked when Baby met up with that bad kitty! Well written and fun...and well worth your time.
