John Barrymore's presence and performance elevates this film far above what it would be without him. Plot focuses on Bulldog Drummond's forth-
coming marriage and self-doubts. Additionally, kidnappings occur and villains try their best to revenge earlier plights ast upon them by Drummond's apprehensions. Barrymore supposedly had great fun playing a variety of characters in disguise throughout the film. Alright plot and performances
but John Barrymore is the real interest here.

This is a little second feature from 1937, a low-budget detective story that contains the odd pleasure of seeing John Barrymore in one of his last films. The story, taken from a novel, is fairly entertaining, and the acting is competent. However, the print is terrible, and the sound is not much better. There is no excuse for selling any film in such poor condition.

I like all of the Bulldog Drummond movies and this is another great one. It has an A movie plot and the acting is as good as any A movie you will see. If they had only made these B movies a little longer. Add 10 minutes and you would have an A movie. Great DVD.

With Bulldog Drummond Comes Back, we have a movie with two lead actors. One was a modest man with modest talent; the other, a man who had trouble distinguishing between acting and hamminess. One was a brave man who, when his acting career died out, became an English teacher; the other was an overbearing drunk some found amusing who died of alcoholism, and whose favorite anecdote among his friends was the night in a drunken stupor he peed against his hostesses curtains at a party. We're talking about John Howard and John Barrymore. Who would you want at your party? Unless your dry cleaners would give you a break on the price of cleaning your curtains, John Howard. But in a movie, it's John Barrymore. Even when he's just going through the motions, as here, he's watchable. And when he's at the top of his game...in both acting and hamminess, as in Twentieth Century...he's just about unbeatable.

Barrymore gets top billing although Howard is the hero. In some ways, the point of the movie and the reason for Barrymore's billing is that it gives moviegoers a chance to see Barrymore put on disguises. Even though he's playing Colonel Neilson, the head of Scotland Yard, Barrymore pastes on false noses and dons scruffy wigs. He transforms himself into a cockney hunchback and an aged fisherman. As the fisherman, he looks like a seagoing Fagin. "I really think I should have been an actor," Neilson tells a young Scotland Yard detective. "I was very good at amateur theatricals," We all get the in-joke.

Why is the head of Scotland Yard walking around carrying a basket of dead fish? He's helping his friend, Captain Hugh "Bulldog" Drummond (John Howard) rescue Drummond's perennial fiancé, Phyllis Claverling (Louise Campbell), from the clutches of Irena Soldanis.

While Bulldog Drummond dates all the way back to the silent era of film, the most fun to be had was surely the "B" series which came later. This terrific entry in the Bulldog Drummond "B" series, featuring John Howard in the role of Hugh Drummond, moves quickly and has more atmosphere than usual. Reginald Denny and E.E. Clive return as Bulldog's pals but Heather Angel is missed as his soon-to-be bride. Louise Campbell does a nice job as Phyllis, however, and John Barrymore's presence as the Colonel adds a serious touch to the proceedings.

Phyllis is kidnapped from Rockingham by two seriously twisted criminal minds Colonel Nielson has been aware of for some time. J. Carroll Naish and Helen Freeman are fun as the evil Valdein and Irena. Nielson allows Bulldog to search for Phyllis in his own way by following the deliberate clues left him, such as phonograph records, to find his lady love.

But while Bulldog and his pals go down to the docks in a merry yet somber chase, the Colonel isn't far behind. Barrymore gets to don disguises so he can follow the action without being seen. Howard, sometimes accused of being a bit bland as Drummond by some, seems a bit more dashing here opposite the Great Profile.

It is Tenny (E.E. Clive) who comes to the rescue in this one in Edward T. Lowe's screenplay based on "Bulldog Drummond and the Female of the Species" by H.C. "Sapper" McNeile. Louis King directs this entry in the series with some flair and the ending is a real bang! Bulldog may have a clear path to the alter finally but for a last second breeze!

A very good entry despite the absence of Heather Angel, and one fans of Bulldog Drummond don't want to miss.

It looks like Bulldog (John Howard) is getting married to Phyllis (Louise Campbell) and giving up the detecting racket.

Only this time the movie stats out with Phyllis' kidnapping. From there is Bulldog formula.

The copy I watched is an Alpha Video poor quality 1937 version at 58 minutes. The screenplay based on "Bulldog Drummond and the Female of the Species" by H.C. "Sapper" McNeile.
