Trivia

This is one of 8 Bulldog Drummond adventures produced by Paramount in the late 1930s, and sold to Congress Films (II) in mid-1954 for re-release; Congress redesigned the opening and closing credits, in order to eliminate all evidence of Paramount's ownership, going so far as to even alter the copyright claimant statements on the title cards; Congress, in turn, sold the films to Governor Films for television syndication. Along the way, Paramount, having disowned the films, never bothered to renew the copyrights, and they fell into public domain, with the result that inferior VHS and DVD copies have been in distribution for many years, from a variety of sub-distributors who specialize in public domain material.

Goofs

Drummond asks his assistant about his itinerary to Europe, asking about his "rail tickets", as his assistant informs him he has booked the "London to Paris express, leaving from Victoria Station". England to France express rail came about some 57 years later with the advent of the "Chunnel". See more »

Quotes

The Detective Behind
15 December 2006 | by tedgSee all my reviews

Another amazing experiment in the detective form, as filmmakers tried to do their own detective work on what works.

In this experiment, the detective is something of a nitwit, but with a charming fiancée. She is kidnapped of course and our detective has to "find" her by following all sorts of clues. Some of these need detecting and are pretty ludicrous. Others are simple; "go back to where you were."

The experiment in the form involves the surrounding characters: two buffoons, and a wily inspector from Scotland yard. He's the detective behind the detective, usually in disguise. Its a double fold that doesn't quite work. So the experiment fails. But if you wander into this, the Scotland Yard man is John Barrymore playing his stage persona.

Ted's Evaluation -- 1 of 3: You can find something better to do with this part of your life.
