Hugh Bulldog Drummond (John Howard) is to marry in three days time, & his bride-to-be Phyllis (Heather Angel) as well as Scotland Yard Colonel Nielson (H.B.Warner) are eager to keep him from investigating any crimes during that time to not jeopardize the wedding ... but that soon proves to be difficult when bankrobber Armides (Eduardo Ciannelli) has picked up exactly Drummond's London flat under renovation as the starting point for his latest heist, robbing a neighbouring bank & get out of the police cordon in the disguise of a painter gone mad ... but he leaves the loot of the heist behind, hidden in Drummond's radio ... & this radio is soon sent away to France (with the loot), where Phyllis prepares the wedding.

& while Armides & his sidekick Garvey (Gerald Hamer) slowly figure out where the money is, & kill unwanted competition (Neil Fitzgerald) along the way, Bulldog, his sidekick Algie (Reginald Denny) & his butler Tenny (E.E.Clive) only begin to comprehend that the loot is in fact hidden in the radio ... & head off to France as well, where Drummond is promptly sent to jail as a spy ... only because he pulled a fast one on police inspector Tredennis (John Sutton) one time too often, & he decided it was time for a little revenge ...

In jail though, Drummond meets Garvey, who has made an unsuccessful event to steal the radio, & who, also mistaking Drummond for a superspy, lets him in on their whole plan, involving quite a number of explosives.

& while Phyllis has already come to the jail to marry Drummond (at least here he can't get away), Drummond breaks jail with Garvey's help. Drummond of course is soon recaptured by local police-chief Dupres's (Louis Mercier) men, & Dupres, who has since learned about Drummond's innocence, has made it his duty to marry Drummond & Phyllis at any cost ... which is when it is found out that Armides has finally succeeded in stealing the radio ... & a chase over the roofs of a clichéd French village including another attempted wedding (on rooftop) & a series of explosions follow, until the radio is secured, & Drummond & Phyllis properly marry at the house of Phyllis' aunt (Elizabeth Patterson), when Armides makes a final attempt to blow everything up to get his hands on the money, but ends up being accidently blown up himself ...

 

Rather entertaining entry into Paramount's Bulldog Drummond series, driven less by its plot (which is a rather interchangeable and a bit silly crime story) but by its amusing dialogue, its series of humourous situations & its ability to not take itself too seriously.
