Algy, Bulldog Drummond's right-hand-man, is getting married. Bulldog attends; on the way home, in the fog, he enters the (apparently deserted) mansion of Prince Achmed in search of a phone. He finds none, but he does find a body - which disappears when he summons a bobby. Bodies keep disappearing as Drummond keeps summoning the authorities, particularly his long-suffering upstairs neighbor, Captain Nielsen; the ever faithful Algy also finds his wedding night disrupted by, among other things, some emergency code-breaking. And of course, there's a beautiful woman (there's always a beautiful woman in the case), Lola, who turns out to be the daughter of the dead man who started all this.Written by

I have been lucky enough to collect all the old Bulldog Drummond movies and I believe that this one is the best all-around offering.
Ropnald Coleman comes across as sophisticated without being pretentious, as adventuresome without being an unreasonable risk-taker. In fact his whole demeanor is one of having fun and inviting the audience along for the ride.
Loretta Young is as beautiful as ever and plays the damsel in distress in true 1930s melodramatic splendor.
Warner Oland comes across with one of his classic, pre-Charlie Chan villian portrayals that is both menacing as well as full of oily charm, also common in the 30s adventures.
I loved it when I first saw it a year ago and I have brought it out for several viewings since then and I have enjoyed it every time.
In short it is the kind of movie that reminds the viewer of how charming and full of fun Ronald Coleman was on the screen.
