Blondie's Holiday was another of the funny entries in the series
This is the twentieth in the Blondie movie series. In this one, Dagwood and his boss, Mr. Radcliffe, are to meet a bank president to get him to agree to approve a new building. He also has a 15-year high school reunion dinner to plan with Blondie. Oh, and there's also a subplot concerning gambling...This was another funny entry in the long-running Blondie series with quite a few colorful characters to, in Sheldon Leonard's words in my favorite movie-It's a Wonderful Life, "give the joint atmosphere", if you know what I mean. In this one, Bobby Larson appears one more time as Alexander's friend, Tommy Cooper, substituting for Danny Mummert's Alvin Fuddle. Also, Daisy's offspring Elmer is the scene-stealing pooch this time around. So on that note, Blondie's Holliday is well worth a look for the series' fans. P.S. This was Constance, or Connie, Lee's final script for the series having done writing on them since Blondie's Blessed Event.
