Blondie in Society is another hilarious entry in the series
This is the ninth in the Blondie movie series. The Bumsteads acquire another dog, a Great Dane. How, I don't feel like getting into. Let's just say it has to do with Dagwood having to get back 50 dollars and leave it at that. Anyway, this was another hilarious entry in the series especially when a blowhard like Edgar Kennedy shows up as a veterinarian! There's also William Frawley-years before his iconic role as Fred Mertz on "I Love Lucy"-on hand as another potential client for Mr. J.C. Dithers. Also appearing are The Robert Mitchell Boys Choir-a musical chorus who would eventually also appear in the Oscar-winning Going My Way. Yes, Ms. Singleton sings a song with them and yes, they're beautiful when they do. Oh, and among the returning players are Grady Sutton-previously the photo salesman in Blondie Meets the Boss-as the dog kennel sales man here and Charles Lane-the furniture salesman in the first Blondie and the train conductor in Blondie Plays Cupid-playing the washing machine salesman here. Wait till you see what happens to him in this one! So on that note, I very much recommend Blondie in Society. P.S. The announcer of the dog show is Bill Goodwin, who was the announcer of The Bob Hope Show and would also do the same on The George Burns and Gracie Show on both radio and TV.
