Movie Info

This second and final "Bulldog Drummond" film to star Ronald Colman, finds the famed sleuth in the midst of a sinister plan orchestrated by Warner Oland. Damsel in distress Loretta Young reports that her wealthy and influential uncle is missing, but all those concerned insist that the uncle never existed, and that Young is out of her mind. Drummond suspects that she's telling the truth, and that the uncle's disappearance is tied into political intrigue of some sort or other. Before the rousing climax, Drummond, the heroine, and Drummond's pal Algy (Charles Butterworth) are repeatedly kidnapped, imprisoned, and threatened with certain death. Counterpointing the film's plot twists (a bit too convoluted to relate in full here) is a comic subplot involving the continually interrupted honeymoon of Algy and his frustrated bride (Una Merkel). Unfortunately, Bulldog Drummond Strikes Back is currently unavailable on television or on videocassette. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Bulldog Drummond Strikes Back

All Critics (2)

It starts out as a regulation thriller, brightened up with comedy touches and occasional smart dialogue; but along toward the end, what with everyone in the cast kidnaped from one house to another, and back again, it turns into out and out slapstick.

Ronald Colman is so authoritative in his role, and Loretta Young so handsome in hers, that it doesn't seem very important if what they do doesn't always make sense.
