"Bulldog" Drummond is vacationing in his country home in England, and his house if rifled by two thieves. After they leave he finds a card marked with some mysterious letters. Doris Meredith comes by the next day, pretending her car has broken down. Drummond knows better but plays along with her. Drummond calls Scotland Yard Inspector Holmes, and is informed that some of the letters comprise the code-name for a Yard-man who disappeared while carrying some diamonds from France to England. Doris tells Drummond the man is her brother. Drummond uses a decoy to lure the thieves out of hiding, but they adduct Doris. Written by Les Adams <>

Middling semi-remake of the same-titled 1937 film
7 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

"Ah, it's good to be back!", says Bulldog Drummond, returning to the screen after an 8-year break. This time he's played by Ron Randell, who is adequate but rather anonymous in the role; the same goes for the supporting cast (no Phyllis or Tenny here, but we do get a new Algy). The story has the same setup as "Bulldog Drummond At Bay" from 1937; someone throws a stone with a message wrapped around it through Drummond's window, then the following day a beautiful woman shows up at his doorstep claiming car trouble. She tries to drug his tea and search the place, he catches on to her but decides to play along to see where she will lead him. From that point on, the stories follow two entirely different paths. So this 1947 film could be classified as a semi-remake of the earlier one. It's certainly far from terrible, but it's not really worth going out of your way to see, either. *1/2 out 4.
