Storyline

Algy, Bulldog Drummond's right-hand-man, is getting married. Bulldog attends; on the way home, in the fog, he enters the (apparently deserted) mansion of Prince Achmed in search of a phone. He finds none, but he does find a body - which disappears when he summons a bobby. Bodies keep disappearing as Drummond keeps summoning the authorities, particularly his long-suffering upstairs neighbor, Captain Nielsen; the ever faithful Algy also finds his wedding night disrupted by, among other things, some emergency code-breaking. And of course, there's a beautiful woman (there's always a beautiful woman in the case), Lola, who turns out to be the daughter of the dead man who started all this.

A good addition to the Bulldog Drummond canon. It begins in a very mysterious vein, which leads you to believe you are in for a treat, as Drummond follows a woman to a house that appears empty, save for a dead body on the living room couch. He races outside and brings a bobby back to the scene, only to find several people inside and no corpse. Even though the film quickly descends into farce, it is fast-paced and holds the interest right to the end as Drummond (and us) try to decipher the mystery. Warner Oland is sinister, Charles Butterworth is hysterical as Algy, Loretta Young is lovely and C. Aubrey Smith is flustered as the Chief Inspector. Just my observation; characters in 30's movies seem to fall in love instantaneously, and at the end Colman and Loretta Young announce their wedding after the briefest of encounters. Nevertheless, 'Bulldog Drummond Strikes Back" is very entertaining and well worth you time at 83 minutes. Shown at Capitolfest, Rome, NY 8/18.

7/10 - Website no longer prints my star rating.
