A youngish (he was 32) Ray Milland plays action hero Captain Hugh “Bulldog” Drummond. On his return to England in his trademark plane, he encounters a strange household in which a damsel is held against her will by three villains. Playing the damsel, Heather Angel is very easy to look at as well as enthusiastic and charming. She joins the fray when Drummond is duking it out with a bad guy. Like to see such pluck. Porter Hall plays the Bearded Scoundrel as a charming but devious rogue. Reginald Denny is Drummond’s trusty but dim-witted buddy Algy Longworth, the stock thick English lord. Very entertaining with ready quips is E.E. Clive as Drummond's valet Tenny. Pleasant and light, with no sense that violence will get scary. The B-movie look is enhanced with fog, dim settings in an eerie house, all action at night, and just any old props from the storeroom.

"While the film may have been a good entry into the B movie world, the transfer by Alpha Video was not.
A large part of the credits are off the screen. The transfer is dark, blurry at times, and generally not very enjoyable.
Fortunately, I have the Image Entertainment version as well and recommend it over the Alpha Video attempt."
Dashing good fun

"Yes, they are both B grade films with low production values, but both show the real strength of Hollywood, when even their second string efforts have something. I doubt if Hollywood could put out a film with such effortless ease now. Ray Milland plays a somewhat daffy Bulldog Drummond, while John Howard is lot sterner. Both films rattle along with dastardly and bearded villans. I liked them both."

"BULLDOG DRUMMOND ESCAPES was one of four movies made in this series in 1937. It starred Ray Milland as Drummond and Reginald Denny as his pal Algy Longworth. The plot centered on an attempt to rescue a captive female (Heather Angel) from a band of international criminals. The film received some good reviews at the time for a "B" production.BULLDOG DRUMMOND COMES BACK was also issued in 1937. John Howard had the role of Drummond and John Barrymore appeared as Colonel Neilson. Much of the focus was on Barrymore who wore many disguises while he was helping Drummond."
