The train ferry where a lot of this film takes place was a real service of the French National Railway and Britain's Southern Railway. The service began in 1936, was interrupted by World War II, resumed in 1947 and ended in 1980. The trip took 12 hours, leaving Victoria Station in London at 9 p.m. and arriving at the North Station in Paris at 9 a.m. Simultaneous service in the opposite direction left Paris at 9:45 p.m. and arrived in London at 9:10 a.m. See more »
...he can ever stop working on a case long enough.
In this Bulldog Drummond film, Hugh (John Howard) and Phyllis (Louise Campbell) are close to their wedding, when he becomes involved in the protection of a new explosive, recently invented by a scientist. Supposedly this explosive is fragile and will go off if you even brush past the container.
The explosive is in a suitcase, which is stolen. For something that will go off if you breathe on it, this suitcase was thrown, dropped, you name it, and it never blew up.
Phyllis, in her sweet way blew up, however, and wondered if she could marry Hugh Drummond when he's so involved in detective work.
John Barrymore again gets top billing as the Colonel, and he's great. Howard is an excellent Drummond, Reginald Denny is on hand as the confused Algy, and E.E. Clive is the butler who is so much more. It's a nice cast.
These Drummond films are B movies and are enjoyable and entertaining. They shouldn't be judged in comparison to Citizen Kane. The Saint, Bulldog Drummond, Charlie Chan, Mr. Moto - all second features that are delightful.
