This "Blondie" pilot was an okay beginning for the '50s TV series
18 April 2017 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

NOTE: I had originally written most of this review on August 3, 2015 and had submitted this in the episode # 6 entry which is now deleted.

Dagwood is asked by his boss, Mr. Dithers (Robert Burton), to buy a certain gun using Dithers' money. His wife and kids, Alexander (Stuffy Singer) and Cookie (Mimi Gibson), see Dag at a sports store talking to a Mr. Miller (Joseph Kearns) thinking the gun is for him. (It's Dag's birthday) and Blondie keeps coming back to get it for him raising the price doing so. Dagwood keeps having to do the same as well. Anyway, this was a little funny much of the time possibly due to director Abby Berlin's timing. He had previously been an assistant to director Frank Strayer on the initial series of Blondie movies before taking over after he left. Berlin would eventually do other things before his death on August 9, 1965. Other players include Lucien Littlefield as Mr. Beasley the mailman, Robin Raymond as Tootsie Woodley, and Isabel Withers as Mrs. Cora Dithers. The last one had previously played HARRIET Woodley in the final one of the Blondie movie entries-Beware of Blondie. Pamela Britton was Blondie and Hal Le Roy was Dagwood. He and Arthur Lake, besides both having played Mr. Bumstead, had also once played Harold Teen, Lake in a silent version and Le Roy in a musical one. I also have reviewed on this site a further ep of this series with Lake and Ms. Britton called "Puppy Love" which is #17...
