Storyline

The Bumsteads receive two letters: one announcing a high-school reunion dinner, the other a "course" showing how to pick winners at the race track. Later, when Dagwood calls to tell Blondie he has received a two-dollar-and-fifty-cent weekly raise, friends present at their home to discuss the reunion dinner with Blondie jump to the conclusion that the raise was $250 weekly. and expect the Bumsteads to pay for the dinner. Dagwood gets fired again, and horse-racing, a race-track, touts, bookies and assorted characters also get involved. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink>

Dinner's On Dagwood
8 January 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Again a special providence watches out for people named Bumstead in Blondie's Holiday. This Blondie film concerns Arthur Lake and Penny Singleton's 15th high school reunion and we get a flashback to Blondie and Dagwood while in high school

Seeing them in high school makes you wonder why a homecoming queen like Blondie picked class klutz Dagwood to team up with. But as that scene ends Blondie predicts that Dagwood will be the biggest success story in the class of 1932 telling fellow classmates Jody Gilbert and Jeff York the same.

Her bragging gets Dagwood on the hook to pay for the class reunion dinner. And Dagwood once again gets fired for screwing up a deal with Grant Mitchell the town banker to build a new bank.

But the biggest bonehead move is Dagwood seeking quick money paying for an education in handicapping horses by racetrack tout Sid Tomack. When he gets picked up in a raid in a very funny sequence he's going to miss the reunion dinner because he's in the slam.

Still that Bumstead divine providence comes through. One of the better films of the Blondie series.
