Arturo de Córdova,
British adventurer John Howard (as Hugh "Bulldog" Drummond) is ready to marry girlfriend Louise Campbell (as Phyllis Clavering), but she is kidnapped. That's very typical in the "Bulldog Drummond" movie series. The abductors, who have a personal connection to Drummond, are in a playful mood. They keep Ms. Campbell alive and send Drummond clues regarding her whereabouts. The clues are received on typewritten notes and heard on gramophone record albums. Most notably joining in the "find Phyllis" game is master-of-disguise detective John Barrymore (as Colonel Nielson). This was the first of three supporting appearances by Mr. Barrymore in the Drummond series. "Bulldog Drummond Comes Back" was the first of seven appearance by Mr. Howard in the leading role. In an unpropitious start, he gets a fine supporting cast. The title refers to Drummond coming back to England, from America.
