Storyline

Dagwood is tricked into buying some swamp-land for Mr. Radcliffe, his boss, and, as a result, is demoted to office boy. However when Radcliffe discovers the lands real value he rushes to the Bumstead home to prevent Dagwood from re-selling the land back to the crooks. Blondie is way ahead of both men on getting this handled. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Blondie's Reward is another very funny entry in the series
27 July 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is the twenty-third in the Blondie movie series. In this one, Dagwood is allowed to stay at home. He wants to relax but Blondie wants him to varnish the floor! Mr. Radcliffe arrives to take Dag to work to purchase a piece of land for him as a "dummy". (No, NOT the kind you usually think of but Mr. Bumstead fits that bill, of course!) There's also a visiting pro football player, some crooks who deal with Dag, and some boxing involved. The second entry in the series written by Edward Bernds, this was another very funny outing for him. And director Abby Berlin does wonders with the material cramming as much action as allowed. This would be his final contribution to the movie series though he'd return to the source material when helming the pilot of the TV version several years later. Bernds takes over with the next entry. So that's a high recommendation for Blondie's Reward. P.S. Eddie Acuff's postman finally gets a name here: He's Mr. Johnson.
