Hugh 'Bulldog' Drummond is a British WWI veteran who longs for some excitement after he returns to the humdrum existence of civilian life.

Algy Longworth: You're perfectly right, Colonel. We ought to complain. Do you know that's the third spoon I've heard drop this month?

A dated but delightful Ronald Colman flick
24 December 2002 | by (Ft. Collins) – See all my reviews

Imagine growing up with Ronald Colman on the silent screen: a man with striking good looks & natural ease before the camera. And then to hear, for the first time, that enchanting voice! I love Ronald Colman, like almost all today I did not discover him until later in life. I am a big fan, but I do not love all his movies. I do love Bulldog Drummond. Yes it is dated. The film & particularly the sound shows its age. But Colman is wonderful, romping through scenes with gay abandon. The doctor is still playing in a silent film, complete with overdone dramatic gestures & expressions. One wishes Joan Bennett would warm up. She is a delicate, beautiful pixie. Even Colman's proximity fails to thaw her. But who cares? Colman rarely lingers in any scene, his energy & grace vibrating on the screen. See the first Colman talkie. Smile when the actors cluster around an object (hidden microphone here!). And just enjoy Ronald Colman.
