Blondie Has Servant Trouble is a chillingly funny entry in the series
This is the sixth in the Blondie movie series. In this one, Blondie wants a maid so Dagwood asks Mr. Dithers for a raise. He refuses but then tells him about a house he's trying to sell and wants them to stay there to test its livability. When they arrive, the find a black character in it. Turns out he's there for some kind of lodge initiation. Then arrive a couple of suspicious characters, a butler and a maid. I'll stop there and just say this was both funny and a little scary making this quite a fun ride for the series. Ray Turner as Horatio does the stereotypical antics involving his race though because Dagwood also gets scared, I managed to laugh my heart out most of the time. Arthur Hohl and Esther Dale provide the suitably atmospheric flavor especially concerning the former. In summary, Blondie Has Servant Trouble was another enjoyable entry in the series. P.S. This was Fay Helm's fourth-and last-appearance in the series as Alvin Fuddle's mother.
