During the 6/5/15 TCM presentation, Ben Mankiewicz reported this was the last of the Bulldog Drummond series that John Barrymore would appear in. Mr. Barrymore's alcoholism had become so out of hand, that for this film Barrymore could no longer read lines. Even if they were written down and shown to him off camera. So he was quietly let go from the Drummond series and H.B. Warner would go on to play Colonel Neilson in the four remaining Drummond films at Paramount. See more »

The lab equipment is the major spark in this entry
One of the weaker entries in the Drummond series, but it's still entertaining. Perhaps I've seen too many of the Drummond films too close together. The humor is not as sharp as earlier entries. The pacing is fine, but the plot and villains don't seem to be up to snuff. The villains don't appear evil or sharp enough to harm a fly, let alone our hero.
There is a nice sequence of that wonderful 30s "lab equipment" working its magic. So much more exciting and dramatic than computer chips and LEDs! Now that's evil!
