Footlight Glamour is a 1943 black-and-white film and the 14th of the 28 Blondie films. It is one of only two movies in the series that did not feature "Blondie" in the title (the other, It's a Great Life, was released earlier that year). The last film in the "Blondie" series for:

  • Frank R. Strayer, producer/director.
  • Irving Bacon as the Bumsteads' hapless mailman, who would be replaced by Eddie Acuff.[1]

Eerily, Arthur Lake looked almost exactly like the way Dagwood Bumstead was drawn in the 1930s and 1940s comic strip, which looks practically nothing like the version from the later 1950s going forward.[citation needed]
