On the eve of his wedding Captain Hugh Drummond is off to Morocco when Scotland Yard's Colonel J.A. Nielson is kidnapped by international criminal Richard Lane.

With his fiancée Phyllis Clavering, friend 'Algy' Longworth and his trusty valet 'Tenny' Tennyson, Bulldog flies his own plane 1200 miles only to find the local British Consul ordering him home without delay.

Drummond isn't an easy man to get rid of however and they soon mount their rescue plan.

There sure were a lot of these Drummond movies made.

They are all more or less watchable and this one is no different.

The title says they go to Africa.

Technically, yes, but Morocco is hardly what comes to mind when you think of Africa.
