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 this case, Gwen, who turns out to be the daughter of the dead man who started all this.

Disappearing Bodies, Appearing Story
27 May 2008 | by (Virginia Beach) – See all my reviews

You've seen this plot before: someone sees a body and then it disappears. Flustered unbelieving cops, Irish because of the era.

In this case, that same device is pulled three times on the cops, then in the finale is turned around and pulled twice on the bad guys.

Here we have a charming detective who takes enough nonchalant risks to get himself in trouble, and enough pluck to get himself out.

But we have some cool narrative devices that play with the detective genre, not yet quite fully formed, but formed enough to honk with. Our detective remarks that the mystery would be more interesting if a beautiful woman in distress appeared. In a few seconds this happens, with absolutely no reason. Its as if he just wrote it that way. She mentions that he is like someone out of a book. Later, he calls in a story to the bad guys and they believe it.

Ted's Evaluation -- 2 of 3: Has some interesting elements.
