Adventurer Drummond, his plucky girlfriend Phyllis, his dotty friend Algy and his dry butler Tennie fly in Drummond’s plane to Morocco in order to free a Scotland Yard Inspector who has been kidnapped. The evil-doers are played by J. Carrol Naish and a very young Anthony Quinn. J. Carrol Naish plays the usual oily smarmy villain and Quinn’s guarded manner makes one sure he was born dodgy and made his own mother suspicious. Silly puns, silly jokes, silly sight gags, and solid acting make this a worth-while romp. Most of the actors were theater-trained professionals in Meerie Olde England: H.B. Warner (the inspector), Reginald Denny (Algy), and E.E. Clive (Tennie).
The series is charming

"I enjoy all the Bulldog Drummond movies, no matter who is playing the lead, no matter who is playing the chief of police, Drummond's family friend. His butler Tenny is worth the price of any of these films.This particular film shocked me in that it takes Drummond and his crew to Morocco, which is portrayed as a sophisticated locale, and very European. The European feel surprised me especially in comparison to other films made at this time which portray jungles with pitch black savages and rampaging wild animals.If you are a fan of old black and white films, then you have probably heard of this series. I recommend this film for collectors."
Okay entry in this series!

"This one is okay for it's genre. Nothing special but a good supporting cast including J. Carrol Naish, H.B. Warner and Anthony Quinn helps. A short running time of 58 minutes won't put you to sleep either. Originally a Paramount release, this is a Congress Films reissue or TV print (probably a dupe at that!) and like most of Alpha's product, it leaves something to be desired. At least it looks like the source material was film rather than VHS tape. If you like the Bulldog Drummond series, you'll probably find this one entertaining."
