Description by OLDIES.com:
The dashing and debonair Captain "Bulldog" Drummond (John Howard), becomes swept up in a fiendish plot perpetrated by foreign criminals. This is the first in a series of eight Paramount films that chronicle the freewheeling escapades of British writer H.C. McNeile's irrepressible detective. Drummond's fiancee, Phyllis Clavering (Louise Campbell), is kidnapped by the diabolical Mikhail Valdin (J. Carrol Naish), a past foe who is being pursued by international authorities for murdering an American millionaire in Paris. With the help of his butler Tenny (E.E. Clive) and partner Algy Longworth (Reginald Denny), Drummond pursues Valdin in a chase through waterfront dives in search of his beloved Phyllis, while Scotland Yard inspector Colonel Nielson (John Barrymore) follows their trail by slipping into an amazing series of disguises.
Another in the series created by H.C. McNeile. This time Bulldog (Howard) must save his kidnapped fiancee.
Just as Captain Hugh "Bulldog" Drummond is planning his wedding, notorious criminals Mikhail Valdin and Erena Soldanis kidnap his bride-to-be, Phyllis. It seems Drummond arrested Erena's husband, and now she's determined to make him pay. So she taunts him by sending him clues of his fiancee's whereabouts. Erena instructs Bulldog to meet her and Valdin at a remote fishing village -- without telling the police what he's up to. But Drummond's friend and superior, Colonel Nielson, disguises himself as a fisherman and follows our hero as he meets the crooks. But before they can free Phyllis, Drummond is abducted. Now it's up to Colonel Nielson and the boys an Scotland yard to save the day.
