Bulldog Drummond on his way down the aisle
8 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lots of familiar British faces in this lousy print of "Arrest Bulldog Drummond," from 1939.

This is my first Bulldog Drummond, and I found it delightful. Bulldog is about to marry Phyllis (Heather Angel) when he's delayed by murder. The inventor of a disaster machine, one that blows up things at fairly close range, is murdered, and his machine stolen. Bulldog is drawn into the investigation -- who murdered this man, took his machine, and what are they going to use it on? John Howard is the man himself, and he's handsome and energetic, with a great speaking voice -- he was Tracy Lord's stuffy fiancé in "The Philadelphia Story." Reginald Denny, familiar from "Rebecca," is one of Bulldog's Marx Brothers type friends, who tries to help. E. E. Clive, who looks like he's about 80 here, is Bulldog's butler Tenny. He died a year later at 60! George Zucco plays the villain, who uses a stingray stinger to kill.

Short, but very good and entertaining. I look forward to seeing more Bulldog Drummond films.
