The reviewers are all over the place on this one. Even the professional critics are divided; some basically calling it a dud and others an unheralded gem. The humor is very British and in places borders on slapstick. The Bulldog Drumond impersonater is a bit of a bungler, but a bungler with a typical English heart of oak. The crazy jewel thief/mastermind bears a strong resemblance to Harpo Marx. Fay Wray is great as the female lead. Fans of Bulldog Drumond and of British humor will probably enjoy this movie which is also known as Alias Bulldog Drumond.
The picture and sound quality of the streamed movie are fine. As I streamed this movie via Amazon Prime, I can not comment on any dvd's.

I've seen a number of Bulldog movies in the past but they were more like serials. This movie was longer and worked harder at filling out characters. It was just plain fun! I would definitely recommend this film.

Bulldog Jack (Walter Forde, 1935)

While Bulldog Drummond has faded into obscurity over the years, back in the day he was a sensation roughly akin to the X-Men today. Herman C. McNeile's original play not only spawned two film adaptations, one in 1922 and one in 1929 (a third is currently in development as I wirte this in 2013), but a series of novels (penned by McNeile), a number of which were also adapted into movies in the thirties and forties, all of which were immensely popular. Needless to say, there were the inevitable spinoffs as well. Probably the only one still remembered today is Alias Bulldog Drummond, also released as Bulldog Jack, for which McNeile was listed as a "screenplay collaborator". It was actually written by Gerard Fairlie, who would make one of the final Drummond films (1951's Calling Bulldog Drummond), as well as other series work, in collaboration with stage actor Jack Hulbert, the film's star. It's remembered for its female lead, the inimitable Fay Wray, but it's not a bad little thing; certainly worth watching if you're familiar with either the films or the novels.

Plot: Jack Pennington (Hulbert), a well-known cricketer, finds himself sharing a hired car with noted detective Bulldog Drummond (Mixed Doubles' Atholl Fleming), and the two of them get on famously. The car is involved in an accident, and Drummond is injured enough that he needs to go to the hospital. He's on his way to interview a new client, and he asks Pennington to go in his place--nothing to it but gathering information, really. Pennington, star-struck, agrees, and passes himself off as Drummond in the interview. And if that's all there is to sleuthing, Pennington figures, he might as well try to solve the case...

An amusing take on the Bulldog Drummond series that will be much more enjoyable if you're familiar with that series. The film itself is old and relatively poor quality but still worth some of your time.

I never saw the actor Jack Hulbert before and was surprised at how well he acted out the part given him of impersonating the real Bulldog Drumond and getting into all sorts of complicated problems. Thoroughly enjoyed this movie and did not want it to end.

I have not seen this issue but this film is desperately needed on DVD. It is one of the best films of the thirties, a funny breeze of a thriller with Fay Wray and the superb Hulberts (Jack and Claude) who provide the laughs. The Art Deco atmosphere and black and white photography are top-notch. The film ends with a much admired chase through the London Underground. This rates alongside Genevieve as one of Britain's most valuable historic films.

If you like B&W 30's-40's films you'll most likely like this one. Not the best Bulldog Drummond but fun.. Dangerous BoB on IMDB

I had trouble with the sound on this and gave up after 20 minutes or so. The sound of static is not my idea of fun.
