5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Double Dose of Fun! 25 février 2008
Par Bobby Underwood - Publié sur Amazon.com
Though H.C. Snapper McNeil's Bulldog Drummond can be traced all the way back to nitrate film of the silent era, certainly the most fun is derived from the "B" series, of which, "Bulldog Drummond in Africa" and "Bulldog Drummond's Secret Police" offer plenty. All the regulars fans of the series love return in this one, and it has tons of atmosphere augmented by humor and some nice pacing from director Louis King.

"Bulldog Drummond in Africa" has Bulldog (John Howard) once again being sidetracked on the eve of his wedding to Phyllis Clavering. Heather Angel gets ample screen time as Hugh's cute and fabulous girlfriend and shines like the African sun during midsummer.

The solid and stalwart Tenny (E.E. Clive) is at Bulldog's side while bumbling but loyal pal Algy (Reginald Denny) runs last second errands, desperately hoping no new adventure will arise to interfere with the nuptials. When Phyllis sees Colonel Nielson being kidnapped from Greystoke Manor by spy Richard Lane (J. Carrol Naish), however, the chase is on!

Just missing them as their plane takes off for Africa, an undaunted Bulldog, finally with pants Algy has been trying to deliver, grabs his own plane and takes to the skies. Phyllis has to stow away because Bulldog is trying to keep her out of harm's way; a cute circumstance which happens often in the film.

Once in Africa, our gang get tangled up with crooked cops, most notably Lane's henchman, Deone Fordine, winningly portrayed by a young and dashing Anthony Quinn. Barely escaping a bomb planted on his plane, they race to rescue the Colonel from a lion in an exciting finish. A fun tone, pleasant finale, and plenty of atmosphere make for one of the best entries in the series, and everything a good "B" is supposed to be.

James Horn directed "Bulldog Drummond's Secret Police" with a screenplay from Garnett Weston based on "The Temple Tower" by H.C. "Sapper" McNeile. This particular entry is quite fun, as Hugh finds adventure in his own home. Five other times Bulldog's nose for mystery and adventure has kept him from the alter with Phyllis, and when a professor shows up at Rockingham on the eve of the nuptuals with a book containing directions to a hidden treasure in the world underneath Bulldog's home, adventure can't be far away.

A secret cipher and the possibility of treasure is just too much for Hugh and his pals to resist, wedding or not! The fun really starts and the pace picks up once the book is stolen and a man is murdered. Phyllis is game, however, and joins in the chase with moxy, asking for a gun. She may need it when she's taken hostage by the killer and the treasure is found, Bulldog and gang on the chase to save her.

There is a dream sequence that lets Hugh recall some of his exploits from previous entries which is campy fun. Leo Carroll makes a good "B" villan and Howard adds the right touch as the man-about-town who can't resist a good adventure. Heather Angel is cute as a button throughout and an ending with a laugh makes this a particularly enjoyable outing for Bulldog and gang. Those who enjoy "B" films, especially series, will like this one a lot.

Bulldog Drummond ranks right up there with Sherlock Holmes as a "B" series favorite and these two films offer ample evidence as to the reason why. Great fun.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Bulldog foils international spies, malicious butlers... and getting married 25 octobre 2015
Par H. Bala - Publié sur Amazon.com
John Howard became the definitive Bulldog Drummond by dint of taking on the role seven times in three year's span, never mind that the best Bulldog Drummond was probably Ronald Colman whose name carried superior prestige and whose speaking voice is butter. But don't front on John Howard as he was perfectly serviceable. He had the trappings of the intrepid man of action and he had that English swagger, was cool and collected. Given, the Bulldog Drummond pictures weren't exactly highbrow fare and didn't exactly tax the actors, script writers, or directors. These were B-movie factory roll-outs calculated to serve as agreeable escapism for movie-goers. And Howard proved to be a solid and charming front man, his interpretation of Drummond someone who can hold his own in dapper company with George Sanders' the Saint and the Falcon, Warren Williams' the Lone Wolf, Chester Morris' Boston Blackie, and Walter Pidgeon's Nick Carter. These cats always make their adventuring seem more like a lark than a bleak, moody murder mystery.

But let's talk about this DVD set: BULLDOG DRUMMOND DOUBLE FEATURE #3 - BULLDOG DRUMMOND IN AFRICA / BULLDOG DRUMMOND'S SECRET POLICE.

BULLDOG DRUMMOND IN AFRICA (1938), 13th in the film franchise, is adapted from H.C. "Sapper" McNeile's story CHALLENGE. It finds our hero once again trying his durndest to get married to the lovely, long-suffering Phyllis Clavering (Heather Angel). "Nothing can stop us now. This time we're going to be married," declares a cocky Drummond. But Phyllis is even more adamant, going so far as to take away her man's and her man's man Tenny's trousers so they couldn't leave the house and get into mischief.

So it's freakin' ironic that it's poor Phyllis herself who abruptly embroils Bulldog in a case of international espionage and kidnapping. Phyllis' visit to the manor of Colonel J.A. Nielson (H.B. Warner), Scotland Yard Commissioner and Bulldog's good pal, was for the sake of prepping for the big wedding. She gets there in time to witness a stranger in the Colonel's home and the Colonel's limp body being lifted into a car. So, nothing for it but to return her man's and her man's man's trousers.

This sucker runs at a brisk 58 minutes, not much time for navel-gazing as the story transitions frantically from London to Morocco. In Morocco, they beard the big bad (J. Carrol Naish) in his lavish estate, a perilous place where moody lions are chained up in the courtyard and where Colonel Nielson is on the verge of being tortured for his intimate knowledge of a top secret radio wave disintegrator (but McGuffin, to you and me).

When it comes to action Capt. Hugh "Bulldog" Drummond is very much in his element. Surprisingly, his venerable, deadpanned manservant Tenny (the priceless E.E. Clive), more Kato than Mr. Belvedere, willingly dives into combat with his master. You can't tell me that an old dude what reserves a backup gun in an ankle holster isn't cool. Bulldog's dimwitted pal Algy Longworth (Reginald Denny) is along mostly for guffaws and to make you cringe whenever he fumbles and stumbles around and endangers those around him. There's Heather Angel's disobedient fiancée loathe to be left out of things and there's J. Carrol Naish's oily nastiness and there's even a young Anthony Quinn's as a slick flunky. You gots your narrow escapes and fisticuffs and shoot-outs and 'splosions. And, yep, you gots your Bulldog Drummond and your poor Phyllis at the end, still not married.

In BULLDOG DRUMMOND'S SECRET POLICE (1939), the butler done it! Them trivia-heads should note that this is the second screen adaptation of McNeile's 6th Drummond book, TEMPLE TOWER (first filmed in 1930 at Fox). And, hey, maybe the sixth time's the charm? Bulldog and Phyllis are twenty hours away from matrimony, never mind that Phyllis' disapproving Aunt Blanche (Elizabeth Patterson) posits a battery of reasons for the nuptials to fall thru yet again: "Fires, murders, explosions, everything short of an earthquake." And maybe Aunt Blanche is some sort of soothsayer. For the happy couple's interminable trek to the altar is diverted when foul murder and skullduggery strike Bulldog's ancestral London home of Rockingham Tower. But that's what you get when you choose to get married in a dark and gloomy and sprawling castle.

The gist of the mystery is that somewhere in the dank depths of Rockingham Tower lies concealed a centuries-old king's treasure. Cue the absent-minded museum professor, a secret cypher, and the fake butler (Leo G. Carroll) whose chicanery is telegraphed early on. This one takes a swerve away from the normal cops & robbers/espionage goings-on as it ventures into the realm of the "Old Dark House" sub-genre. A run time of 55 minutes makes this another breezy watch. I wasn't down with the unnecessary flashbacks of Bulldog's reliving past botched wedding attempts, here viewed thru the prism of Bulldog's nightmare. Otherwise, it's a fun time watching Bulldog's "secret police" - composed of his always game manservant Tenny, his addled pal Algy, and Colonel Nielson - have a try at surviving a cavernful of booby traps, and seeking a lost fortune, and rescuing a damsel in distress (poor Phyllis). The third act - taking place in the caverns beneath Rockingham Tower - is particularly laced with pressure-packed moments.

Bulldog Drummond in Africa, 1938 film

The story begins with a view of Parliament and Big Ben in London at night. Hugh Drummond inspects a stamp. Hugh and Tenny are confined to their home to keep them out of trouble. Hugh calls Algy about the tickets and trousers. "What'll I do?" No telephone calls either. Richard Lane visits Colonel Neilson, he asks for secret information about a radio wave disintegrator. Phyllis Clavering sees Neilson carried out to a car! The butler gives a name: Richard Lane. Can they get to Hampton Heath to stop the airplane? No. The police order Hugh against flying. Will there be a trick? Yes. "Welcome to Arbi" in Spanish Morocco.

Recognize those people at the British Embassy? Mistaken identification? No, we see the villains. Will they plant a bomb on Hugh's airplane? Hugh returns to land, after this the bomb explodes! Tenny has a hidden pistol. "Be careful!" Lane questions Neilson. Is Neilson lying? Can he trust Lane? Hugh and Algy prowl around Lane's house. The threat from the lion is interrupted by gun shots. There is a struggle on the porch. One man falls, and the lion attacks him! A gruesome death. The last scene shows the heroes returning on an airplane flying home.

This low-budget drama seems more serious and better than the others. Will Hugh and Phyllis ever get married, or is that just a running joke?

Bulldog Drummond's Secret Police, 1939 film

The film begins with an American steam train running on the tracks. Hugh Drummond is racing along the highway to beat it to the crossing! [A very dangerous act, unless it is in a movie.] A stranger asks for directions at the train station. What is the month? Algy catches a vase. A new servant arrives [note body language]. Absent-minded Professor Downie arrives to tell about the treasure on Hugh's property. Hugh has a dream - or is it a nightmare? Flashbacks to earlier films. Hugh awakes to a fight with a stranger in the dark, the book with the cipher is stolen. Downie calls with news, but the line is cut. They arrive too late. Tenny notices something, then burns a newspaper in the fireplace. Hugh breaks the simple substitution cipher. Seaton also notes the message. There is a fight in the night, the burglar alarm goes off.

Seaton meets a Bobby and shoots him! But they don't know Seaton's identity. Is he hiding in the house? How did he get away? "Vine-climbing Dracula"? The police report finding a body in the woods, someone who was seen at the train station. Colonel Neilson deduces what happened - a body substitution! Bolton finds the old secret passageway, and Phyllis finds him. Will the heroes be trapped in a room where the spiked ceiling drops down? Can they escape? Will there be more threats and danger for the heroes? Will they triumph at the end? The next day the wedding begins. Will there be an explosive surprise? Will Phyllis and her aunt Blanche leave on a hunting trip?

The mixture of comedy and drama in these stories is unusual. While this story is set in England it seems to be filmed entirely in Hollywood. Was the book better than the movie? This movie echoes "The Musgrave Ritual" from the Sherlock Holmes series. The "Secret Police" in the title is misleading.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 recomended 14 septembre 2009
Par Paul Galarraga - Publié sur Amazon.com
I had first read about Bulldog Drummond in a biography of Ian Flemming and was aware that he was the major influence for James Bond. But seeing these movies brought to light something more. If you are familiar with the James Bond novels you will see clearly how James Bond grew out of Bulldog Drummond, but if you watch these movies you will see how BD is the missing link with the great detectives of the nineteenth century. The way Bulldog Drummond both lives in the shadow of Sherlock Holmes and casts the shadow that will someday yield James Bond (of the books) is amazing.
