A British aircraft manufacturer is testing a new fighter airplane, but someone is sabotaging all the tests & killing quite a few engineers, which is not exactly preventing the plane from being developed, but jeopardizes contract with the military worth several hundred million Pounds  - & this of course calls for insurance detective Bulldog Drummond (Richard Johnson).

Drummond, along with his self-employed naive assistant Flicky (Sydne Rome) soon find several suspects: Baroness Helga (Daliah Lavi) - who makes a few attempts on Drummond's life -, her partner in crime Pandora (Beba Loncar), & mysterious businessman Torenson.

Soon the trail leeds to Africa ... & to a raceboat run by Hans Kruger (Douglas Sheldon) ?

Fact is, Kruger's raceboat runs on infrasonic soundwaves (don't ask), & obvioulsy the villain, whoever it is, needs them for an infrasonic weapon. Drummond tries to protect the boat, but that only leads to him & his new bodyguard Butch Carruthers (Ronnie Stevens) being kidnapped to the lead villain's secret island headquarters. & the lead villains is ... of course Drummond's arch nemesis Carl Peterson (James Villiers), who has been disguised as Torenson to stay withthe action.

& on his island, Peterson is not only guarded by Baroness Helga & Penelope, but also by a bunch of female androids, & it seems that Flicky has been in his services as well.

However, instead of killing Drummond right away, Peterson discusses his plans to sabotage the testflight of the new ultrasonic plane using infrasonic soundwaves - he needed the boat to get the technology - with Drummond over dinner. & while Drummond doesn't approve, there seems to be pretty little he can do, especially since he is to be executed the next morning. But then the Baroness has put it into her head to have sex with him on the eve before his death, & after having satisfied her, Drummond finds an opportunity to slip out of his room, escape all the robots &, witht he help of Flicky, who turns out to be a CIA agent after all, hide somewhere on the premises, and when the place is thoroughly searched by Peterson's androids, Drummond finds out that robot number seven (Vanessa Howard), always the most ineffective of the bunch, is also on his side.

The only bad thing is that Peterson has now found out about Flicky ...

Noon the next day: The airplane is already high up in the air when Peterson shoots his infrasonic soundwaves at it, which cause it to rise ever higher & higher until it eventually gets into orbit, which it's clearly not built for. But Drummond can prevent that just in time, rushing in in a critical moment & using Peterson's very own weapon, the infrasonic device, against him, destroying all his fancy getup & saving the airplane from desaster just in time.

Then he turns the robots against one another, & eventually it all ends in a bang, with only himself, Butch, Flicky & robot number seven escaping. & wouldn't you know it, in the end, Butch gets the girl - Flicky that is - & Flicky gets the infrasonic device .... just too bad it turns out she's working for the KGB (as it turns out right then).

Drummond is left behind with robot number seven, who now turns out to not be a robot after all.

 

While the first of the 1960's Bulldog Drummond films, Deadlier than the Male, made a serious attempt to rip off the James Bond formula (but turned out to be little more than a average if entertaining typical 1960's espionage film), Some Girls Do throws all attempts at seriousness overboard, the formula his here turned into parody: all the supporting characters are wild eccentrics (most notably Robert Morley, who runs a cooking school for statesmen & spies, always wears an apron & is called Miss Mary), the film always goes for a joke rather than narrative coherence, & every excuse is used to show women in bathing suits.

Consciously silly & thus highly entertaining.
