It's No Secret What Scotland Yard Can Do
19 January 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

John Howard came to an end in the Bulldog Drummond series with Bulldog Drummond's Secret Police. A misnomer of a title if there ever was one because the police are Scotland Yard and they're quite out in the open in this film.

Will Drummond finally get married to his long suffering sweetheart Heather Angel? Only Tess Trueheart from Dick Tracy and Adelaide from Guys And Dolls have been waiting longer to get their intended before a preacher. In this film he's returned to Rockingham Hall, the Drummond family estate to just prepare for the wedding with Angel with her aunt Elizabeth Patterson doubting as usual it will ever come off.

It might not yet because a funny looking professor played by Forrester Harvey comes by with a tale that says there's a royal treasure left by the Cavaliers in the English civil war buried some place in the stately home. Like all English homes belonging to the gentry it has its secret passages, secret even from the current occupants. But when Harvey is murdered everybody is scrambling to find the culprit and the treasure.

With the lack of cast and the short running time the suspect is rather obvious. The film is also padded with scenes from previous Bulldog Drummond films in a dream sequence. A rather inferior note for the series to come to a close.
