Leave It to Blondie marked a good enough series return after a hiatus of nearly two years
This is the fifteenth in the Blondie movie series. After a hiatus of more than a year, this series was revived due to public demand. The cast is pretty much the same with the exception of the mailman who is played by Eddie Acuff instead of Irving Bacon. And Abby Berlin takes over as director, replacing Frank Strayer who Berlin was previously assistant to. Anyway, in this one both Blondie and Dagwood write a $100 check to charity but the bank can't cover both so they need some money fast. Enter a song writing contest...This was another funny entry in the series. Arthur Lake does really well with many physical bits of business here. As usual, Dag temporarily gets fired and Blondie gets jealous when she jumps to conclusions. And it takes a while here but the new mailman also gets bumped into by Mr. Bumstead. So on that note, Leave It to Blondie is recommended. P.S. In this one, Alvin's father is played by Arthur Space. John Qualen previously played the role in Blondie on a Budget.
