Blondie's Reward is another very funny entry in the series
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.
