John Howard (Howard was Bulldog between John Lodge and Ron Randell, earlier, Bulldog had been portrayed by Ronald Coleman and Ray Milland; afterward by Tom Conway and Walter Pidgeon) headed the cast of this Drummond escapade as Capt. Hugh C. ‘Bulldog’ Drummond, supported by a throng of talented character actors, including H.B. Warner (who was filling the shoes of John Barrymore) as Colonel Nielson , Reginald Denny reprising his role as Algy Longworth, E.E. Clive again appearing as Tenny, Leo G. Carroll, Heather Angel continuing as Phyllis Clavering and Elizabeth Patterson returning in the role of Aunt Blanche. Directed by James P. Hogan (60 films in 23 years) who piloted many entries of the Bulldog Drummond and Ellery Queen franchises. As many actors portrayed Bulldog, so did various companies produce the pictures: Paramount Pictures (producer of Bulldog Drummond’s Secret Police), 20th Century Pictures, Gaumont British Picture Corporation, Associated British Picture Corporation (ABPC), Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer British Studios, Bernard Small Productions, as Reliance Pictures Inc., Astra-National, Hollandia, Fox Film Corporation, Greater Films Ltd., The Rank Organisation and Ashdown Film Productions.
