Blondie In The Dough finds Dagwood Bumstead up to his usual bumbling ways. Arthur Lake and Jerome Cowan are going out on a golf outing with a new client Clarence Kolb. Of course Kolb is his usual irascible self, but watching this I think that Dagwood was really put upon. After all whatever you think of him he is a professional. So when Dagwood finds out it's a twosome and not a foursome for golf he should have stood up for himself. Worse than that Cowan should have stood up for him. What right did Kolb have to use him for a caddy? And of course Dagwood makes his usual botch at being a caddy.
Which gets him fired. But the Bumsteads are ready this time. Dagwood has been taking a correspondence course in radio engineering so he can have a new profession. In the meantime to pay for a new stove they've bought, Penny Singleton starts baking cookies to sell with the help of a kindly old eccentric gentleman she met at the grocery store played by Hugh Herbert. Hugh Herbert and eccentric is one of filmdom's biggest redundancies.
This is one of the best of the Blondie series. Of course it all works out in the end for the Bumsteads. But it should have put the Bumsteads on easy street for the rest of their lives. Then again if it did there would be no more Blondie films.
Eddie Acuff plays their long suffering mailman. This film shows that a Bumstead can come at you from any direction. You'll have to watch the movie to see what I mean.
