The whole thing is hardly more than a tenth carbon copy of the original Drummond. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Ray Milland stars as adventurer and soldier-of-fortune Hugh "Bulldog" Drummond who rescues lovely damsel-in-distress Phyllis Clavering (Heather Angel). A scheming acquaintance is intent on stealing her sizable inheritance and holds her captive in a stately country manor. Phyllis' brother is murdered and killers stalk Bulldog and his hapless friend Algy Longworth (Reginald Denny). Scotland Yard arrives to unravel the mystery, but not before Capt. Drummond faces the challenge of his life. Bulldog Drummond Escapes is the only entry in the successful Paramount series starring the legendary and dashing Milland (The Lost Weekend) as Drummond. Based on writer/creator H.C. McNeile's play, this first in the eight part series is arguably the finest with believably menacing villains and plenty of action.

Product Description:

In his only appearance as Drummond, Milland falls in love with an heiress he's supposed to be protecting from spies.

Plot Synopsis:

Suave detective Captain Hugh "Bulldog" Drummond defies his superiors orders and starts investigating the case of a mysterious woman who feigned being hit by his car. When she disappears, he discovers in the back seat of his automobile. It contains proof that her nefarious guardian kept her captive -- and had already murdered her brother. When Drummond starts digging for information, he unearths some startling facts.

With a wild gleam in his eye.... Movie Lover: from Columbia, MD US -- October, 24, 2003

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.
