Blondie in the Dough (1947)

The 21st film in the Blondie series was written by Arthur Marx, son of Groucho, who had already had one successful career as a tennis player, and was just starting a second career as a screenwriter. Marx’s presence seems to have helped, as the script in the film is better than many of the other later Blondie films.

The plot involves Blondie starting her own brand of cookies which are an instant hit. Meanwhile, Dagwood is much less successful training for his part time job as a radio technician. The two subplots come together when Blondie meets and eccentric baker, who turns out to be the president of the Premier Bisquit Company, a key sponsor for a radio tycoon who wants to build a new station with Dagwood’s construction company.
