Hugh Bulldog Drummond (Ray Milland) returns to england, where hje is pretty much discouraged from doing some detective work by everyone, including police Colonel Nieslon (Guy Stnding) & his perpetual sidekick Algie (Reginald Denny), whose wife is having a baby ... but when Drummond finds an unconscious woman & a dead men besides he road to his house, he immeduiately hurls himself into the mystery, especially after the unconscious woman steals his car (but she doesn't get far it seems).

Turns out that the mysterius woman is Phyllis Clavering (Heather Angel), who stays at Greystone Manor (in the immediate neighbourhood of Drummond's manor), where she is treated for persecution mania, thinking that her brother was killed by a certain Norman Merridew (Porter Hall), who's now after her inheritance ... which is of course total rubbish - or so Norman Merridew, who strangely enough stays at Greystone castle with her, assures Drummond ... a story that is just too plausible to be true, thinks Drummond, , & starts investigating, even managing to lure Algie away from his wife who is about to deliver.

Colonel Nielson & the local police however seem less than pleased about the newly arrived investigator, & almost arrest him & Algie at one point too (they are only just saved by Tenny [E.E.Clive], Drummond's butler).

Soon Drummond & friends are at Greystone Manor again, & while Tenny & Algie accidently take Merridew's sister Nathalie (Fay Holden) hostage, Drummond frees Phyllis, but is himself captured by Merridew ... & finds out why Merridew is quite so eager to get possession of Greystone Manor ... he runs a counterfeiting outfit in the manor's basement ...

In the end it is actually Phyllis who breaks Drummond free from Merridew, just before Colonel Nielson arrives, who, it turns out, has been after Merridew for quite some time.


First of 8 Paramount-produced Bulldog Drummond-films (& the only one starring Ray Milland, the others star John Howard), pretty much setting the tone for the series: The Bulldog Drummond films are nice little B-mysteries  full of all the usual trappings, like bearded villains, sinister butlers, secret passageways, sliding doors & of course the dashing hero & his loveable if naive sidekick.

Bulldog Drummond Escapes itself is not a bad film, as it's fast-paced & refuses to take itself too seriously, on the other hand it's hardly significant, as the 1930's seemed to be in constant supply of this kind of B-mysteries ...
