Movie Lover: Charles Power

Bulldog Drummond's car is stolen by a beautiful woman; naturally, it's love at first sight. (In fact, the subsequent Drummond movies often are framed by their attempts to tie the knot.) It turns out that she is escaping from villains by whom she is promptly recaptured, inspiring Drummond to come to her rescue. Ray Milland plays the title role with a manic obsession which makes him much more interesting that John Howard, who inherited the role in the later movies. The first few minutes are a bit rough, but most of the movie is surprisingly well preserved.
