Blondie Goes to College is one of the lesser entries of the Blondie series
This is the tenth in the Blondie movie series. In this one, Dagwood wants to go to college and Blondie decides to go with him though reluctantly. So they send Baby Dumpling to military school. I'll just now say there wasn't much that was funny here though Cliff Nazarro as a doubletalk professor was amusing, as was Dag's attempts at joining some sports teams. Also, having Blondie sarcastically calling her hubby "Daggie" after a coed played by Janet Blair starts calling him that was also good for a laugh. Mr. Dithers seems more sympathetic here though he turns back to his partially mean self soon enough. Among the supporting cast are Larry Parks before his star-making turn as Al Jolson in The Jolson Story and Lloyd Bridges before "Sea Hunt". Not among the supporting cast is Irving Bacon as Mr. Beasley, the mailman. Guess he wanted to take a break from getting constantly knocked over by Dagwood! In summary, if you're a Blondie movie series completest, go ahead and watch Blondie Goes to College. Otherwise, it's skipable. P.S. This is the last one on the Platinum Disc Corporation set I originally bought from Walmart back in 2005 when the "Blondie" comic strip was celebrating 75 years of print. Now that the rest of the series is online, I'll be seeing the rest of them for the first time in the coming weeks and reviewing them afterwards...
