As ever so often in this series, Bulldog Drummond (John Howard) is to marry his sweetheart Phyllis (Heather Angel) the very next day ... when he somehow becomes entangled in a murder mystery, and this time the victim is one of his firends (Leonard Mudie) who has developed a detonator which can cause explosives to go off from a distance of half a mile, maybe more, only via certain rays. And though Drummond is desperate to marry Phyllis, he sees it best to call it off when the actual culprit only known as the Stinger (George Zucco) threatens to take her life should Drummond interfere, and Drummond even sees to it that Phyllis goes on their honeymoon without him ...

After failing to capture the Stinger in the UK though, Drummond has to realize to his horror that the villain and his female sidekick Lady Beryl (Jean Fenwick) have taken exactly the same cruise ship to Gibraltar Phyllis has taken. Somehow, Phyllis finds out Stinger and Lady Beryl are up to no good, and she figures Drummond has to be after them (don't ask how she figures that out), but she tries to move in on them on her own, and quickly becomes their hostage. Drummond, along with his sidekick Algie (Reginald Denny) and his servant Tenny (E.E.Clive) do their best to save her though, and after a bit of a mixup that has Algie and Tenny temporarily become the Stinger's hostages and that causes an ammunitions depot to go up with a bang, Drummond even manages to deliver the baddies to justice and destroy their infernal device.

 


Like most of Paramount's Bulldog Drummond features, this is a light-hearted murder mystery/espionage story that up to a point is easy to like - yet it's one of the weaker entries into the series because the plot is simplistic and overly constructed at the same time, it contains way too many plotholes, and above all, it loses steam about halfway through its story, once the murder mystery aspects of the plot are resolved, from which point on it's nothing more than a few pointless and not too exciting chases. Still, as a whole the whole thing is still entertaining, just nothing special.
