For reasons I still can't fathom both Arthur Lake and Penny Singleton decide they need to go back to college and further their education. Both have missed the college experience so Dagwood and Blondie park Baby Dumpling in a military boarding school and head to the halls of dear old ivy.
Columbia Pictures more than most studios used the movie series as part of their programming and the Blondie films afforded them the opportunity to exhibit some of their young hopefuls. In the student body are people like Larry Parks, Sid Melton, Lloyd Bridges, Janet Blair and Adele Mara. Parks is the campus jock who sets out after Blondie and the beautiful Janet Blair is attracted to Dagwood God knows why. Blair's father is Andrew Toombes who is rich and who the Dithers Construction company would like to land as a client. Dagwood always had phenomenal charm, or luck, or something that always landed these clients and usually saved his job throughout the series.
This one has some good moments with Dagwood trying out for many collegiate sports. Best is him blowing the big crew race when he stands up in the canoe and tips over. He's not a big man on campus after that.
Good entry in the Blondie series.
