Storyline

Dagwood causes the Radcliffe Construction Company to lose a potential contract for a new radio-station building when he so irritates the client on the golf course that the client stops the negotiations. Blondie takes a hand. She meets an eccentric business man, joins him in his hobby of cooking, and eventually uses him as a lever to regain the building contract for Dagwood and the Radclidde company.

Blondie in the Dough was perhaps the funniest of the Blondie movie series so far!
26 July 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is the twenty-first in the Blondie series. In this one, Dag is a caddy for a radio station owner. Blondie goes into business when she gets compliments on her cookies. (This is decades before her comic strip self and neighbor Tootsie Woodley start a catering business!) And Hugh Herbert-previously in series entry It's a Great Life-returns as another funny befuddled character. This was perhaps the funniest of the series so far. Maybe the fact Arthur Marx-yes, Groucho's son-is one of the writers is a reason. Or maybe director Abby Berlin had a bit more comic rhythm this time. Whatever it was, I found myself laughing mostly all the way through. So on that note, I highly recommend Blondie in the Dough. P.S. As with the previous two entries, a line mentions Mr. Dithers as the previous owner of the construction business. This may have been put in to remind audiences that the movie series isn't completely following the canon of the comic strip or the radio series that was running at the same time where Mr. Dithers was still present on that show and Arthur Lake was playing Dagwood there as well. Blondie, however, would be played by Arthur's wife Patricia Van Cleve as well as Ann Rutherford for a season instead of Penny Singleton by the time the series ended on those airwaves in 1950.
