Blondie's Secret was the first in the series directed by Edward Bernds
This is the twenty-fourth in the Blondie movie series. The Bumsteads are ready for their vacation but because a client of Mr. Radcliffe wants only Dagwood to correct some errors in some building plans, Blondie reluctantly agrees to a one-day delay despite Dagwood's boss having done that three times already! Then this client wants some more corrections and now Radcliffe has to find a way to delay yet again without upsetting Blondie. His toady, Ollie Merton (Jack Rice), has some ideas...Being the first of the series directed by Edward Bernds, this one has plenty of good laughs as well as a plot that for once doesn't have Dag getting fired, asking for a raise, or Blondie getting jealous of other females around her hubby. (Though if she knew what Dag was dreaming about, she wouldn't like it!) I should note that Alvin Fuddle, as played by Danny Mummert, sounds like the native Texan Mummert really was in this one. Oh, and there's a subplot involving a counterfeiting ring. So on that note, Blondie's Secret is another worthy one in the series. P.S. While Eddie Acuff's postman was addressed as Mr. Johnson in the last one, here he's Mr. Beasley which was the name used in the actual comic strip created by Chic Young as well as the name for the previous regular mailman, Irving Bacon, in the very first Blondie movie 10 years earlier!
