Blondie for Victory was another funny entry in the series for the most part
This is the twelfth in the Blondie movie series. Made at the beginning of U.S. involvement in World War II, Mrs. Bumstead organizes a Housewives of America meeting to tell her fellow neighbors their duties for help in the war effort. But that means the husbands have to do what their wives normally do when they're not on duty. I'll stop there and just say there are plenty of funny slapstick scenes especially when they involve Dag with his boss, Mr. Dithers. Also, the mailman-Mr. Crump-in this ep is at another job but guess who still bumps into him here? Most of the movie I thought was funny though the chase at the end was a bit too silly for my tastes. So on that note, Blondie for Victory is worth seeing. P.S. This was Don Beddoe's last appearance in the series having previously been in Blondie Meets the Boss and Blondie on a Budget. And the only time Alexander is called by his old name of Baby Dumpling is when his father addresses him as such before quickly changing to the other one. And Majelle White played Cookie in this entry. Also, one of the movie stars mentioned by one of the guest characters was Rita Hayworth, who had appeared in Blondie on a Budget as an old friend of Dag's.
