Blondie’s Holiday (1947)

I’ve gotten up to the 20th installment in the Blondie series. At this point, the movies are more than predictable, and somewhat less than funny, but I am a completist and want to watch the whole series straight through. But I find even the poorest Blondie films mildly entertaining.

It is not really clear what the title Blondie’s Holiday is all about, since there is no mention of a holiday or a vacation. The plot involves Blondie meeting old high school classmates who was voted the most likely to succeed in the class of 1932. Blondie gets a call from Dagwood with the news that he has gotten a $2.50 a week raise, and the old school chums mistakenly think he is pulling in $250.00 a week. They suggest that Dagwood pay for reunion dinner, and Blondie, not wanting to lose face, reluctantly agrees. Then the projected costs keep rising and Dagwood takes up gambling on the horses, and is arrested in a raid on an illegal betting shop, making it impossible for him to attend the dinner at all. As always, everything works out in the end.
