Description:Blondie (Penny Singleton) wants a fur coat. Dagwood (Arthur Lake) want to join a fishing club. They can't afford both and can't easily afford either. Dagwood's ex-girlfriend Joan (Rita Hayworth) shows up to give Dagwood a contract (she works for a company Dagwood's company does business with). Joan volunteers to give Dagwood a ride and the two end up stranded in the country. Their car is towed into town and they go see a movie while waiting for it. Dagwood enters a lottery. That night, Blondie is jealous. Dagwood tells her the truth about his day and promises not to see Joan again. But then he wins the theater lottery and has to pick up his money. He has to take Joan along because it's his signature on the card. Dagwood decides to buy Blondie her fur and takes Joan along to make sure it fits. Blondie sees them together at the store and decides to get a divorce, but a wise lawyer talks her into going home. After a bunch more muddle, they finally get their stories straight and all is well.

Review - Blondie on a Budget

Odd seeing the pre-star Rita Hayworth. Her character seemed to be along just to give Blondie and Dagwood something to misunderstand each other about. There wasn't much of a story to the first movie, but by this one (number 5), it's obvious the series had already settled into a formula that didn't require logic or creativity.
