When the profits of their various film series began slumping in the mid-1940s, Columbia Pictures tried to broaden the appeal of these films by disguing the fact that they were indeed series entries. Thus it was that Columbia's 13th "Blondie" picture was shipped out as It's a Great Life. The comic confusion begins when Dagwood Bumstead (Arthur Lake), intending to buy a house, buys a horse instead. Before the film's 75 minutes have run their course, Dagwood gets mixed up in a fox hunt. But Blondie (Penny Singleton) saves the day as usual, with the help of eccentric millionaire Timothy Brewster (Hugh Herbert). After It's a Great Life and #14 "Footlight Glamour", Columbia restored the name "Blondie" to the titles of all subesequent installments in this long-running comedy series.

Ollie W (gb) wrote: A fun, decidedly one-sided look at environmental activism, that manages to be both frequently amusing and poignantly critical of contemporary establishment, without ever seeming pedestrian or unnecessary. Well directed and stylishly edited by Emily James, this memorable documentary calls to mind the thrilling excitement of last years environmental crime doc The Cove.

The first time I watched it I enjoyed but then it just got funnier and funnier with every rewatch and still never fails to make me laugh out loud repeatedly.Serious comic gold here.
