Dagwood gets in trouble with bookies and winds up in jail. Bank manager Samuel Breckinridge comes to his rescue to thank Dagwood for getting compulsive gambler Mrs. Breckinridge out of the casino just before the police raid.
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

Dagwood Bumstead is certainly not getting in solid with his new boss Jerome Cowan in Blondie's Reward. Cowan gives Arthur Lake a rare day off, but it's a working day off. He's sent to act as a dummy for Cowan who wants to buy a parcel of land.
But Lake proves he's a dummy in fact as well as name when he buys the wrong parcel from a pair of sharpies played by Frank Jenks and Chick Chandler. He's stuck with some swamp land that no one has any use for and Cowan has to keep on salary and not fire him in order that he pay back what he gave him to buy.
Young Ross Ford is also mistaken for Dagwood when he goes on an errand for him and punches out Myron Healey who is the prospective son-in-law of Cowan client Paul Harvey. But Cowan's daughter Gay Nelson likes what she sees and Harvey likes what he hears about as he didn't really like Healey anyway.
A combination of the Bumstead kids and neighbor Danny Mummert save the day for the Bumsteads and Penny Singleton puts things right for her man. As Blondie always does.
This is an amusing entry in the Blondie series.
