Movie Info

Tired of his sedentary postwar existence, Col. Hugh "Bulldog" Drummond (Ronald Colman) offers his services as adventurer for hire. This gets him mixed up with lovely Joan Bennett, whose wealthy father is being held against his will in a gloomy sanitarium. Armed with little more than bravado, Drummond, his pal Algy (Claud Allister) and faithful butler Danny (Wilson Benge) walk right into the villain's lair--said villain being the evil Dr. Lakington. Drummond is overpowered by Lakington's

Starring Ronald Colman in an Oscar-nominated performance, the film was so pupular that it launched a whole series, with different actors in the lead.

Early talkie with Ronald Colman in title role; spawned Drummond series.

A technologically precocious film, but it helps that it's consistently both amusing and thrilling.

Audience Reviews for Bulldog Drummond

Considering the age of this antique surprising fluid film with Colman perfectly urbane in the lead. Joan Bennett is just a baby here and years away from the sassy brunette of many classic noirs.

Ronald Colman holds the show together well. It comes across as a cliff hanger serial, which starts with good potential, but never quite delivers. Allister and Benge play Bulldog's friend and butler respectively. Allister is beyond annoying as the supposed comedy relief. Bennett plays the damsel in distress, Phyllis, who seeks Bulldog's help for her uncle. A Dr. Lakington is keeping her uncle drugged at a supposed nursing home. Carl and Irma Peterson are the masterminds behind the scheme to get the uncle's money. Bulldog must use his fists, his gun, his car, and his intellect to stay a step ahead of the swindlers and their goons. A good early attempt at a thriller. More worthwhile for how it influenced later adventure serials.
