Actually, Bulldog Drummod (Ronald Colman) only came to England from Africa to attend the wedding of his best friend Algie (Charles Butterworth) to Gwen (Una Merkel), but before long, he stumples upon a corpse in the house of respectable businessman Prince Achmed (Warner Oland), and stumles upon Lola Field (Loretta Young), whose uncle has gone missing - and Drummond has good reason to believe that the uncle and the dead man are one and the same person (they are of course). So he calls upon Algie (in his wedding night, too) and Scotland Yard Captain Neilsen (C.Aubrey Smith) to help him solve the case.

But while Algie has no objections against leaving his wife alone on their wedding night, Neilson is only interested in getting a good night's sleep, and eventually he orders a couple of policemen to block Drummond's way from Prince Achmed's house - expecially after both the body and Lola Field have mysteriously disappeared ...

Still, even with Achmed's entrance blocked, Drummond manages to break in - repeatedly -, make an enemy of Achmed and find out it has something to do with the cargo of the ship Lola and her uncle came to Great Britain with.

Still, in the end, he and Algie become prisoners of Achmed, and only thanks to the clever use of an internal telephone used to drive Achmed mad can they manage to escape, and burn the cargo aboard Achmed's ship just before it's unloaded ... and for good reason too, it turns out some of the furs the ship was carrying were carrying the cholera virus.

Achmed, upon realizing he has lost, kills himself, while Drummond, as a thank you, gets Lola Field in the end.

And Algie ?

As soon as he comes home to his newly married wife to you-know-what, Drummond calls him up and invites him to his wedding - which takes place right away.

Mischa Auer and George Regas play Achmed's henchmen, E.E.Clive and Halliwell Hobbes a pair of half-witted London policemen.

 

Entertaining crime film, with Ronald Colman making a good lead and not taking himself too seriously, while many recognizable character actors can be found in supporting roles doing their bit to make this movie a fun genre piece to watch.
