Blondie Hits The Jackpot (1949) Director: Edward Bernds     Writers: Jack Henley (original screenplay),  Chic Young (comic strip characters)     Stars: Penny Singleton,  Arthur Lake,  Larry Simms          The "Blondie" series reaches Number 25 with Blondie Hits the Jackpot. Fired for messing up an important contract, Dagwood (Arthur Lake) takes a job as a manual laborer for a construction firm. He is rescued from penury when Blondie (Penny Singleton) wins a radio contest. Of slender interest is the fact that Larry Simms, playing Blondie and Dagwood's son Alexander, is now shaving and going out with girls--a far cry from his "Baby Dumpling" days in the series' earliest entries.    Here is the link to the movie at the Internet Movie database:
