In this 1967 drama, resourceful British agent Bulldog Drummond, who appeared onscreen in a series of spy stories between 1929 from 1951, returned to duty in the wake of James Bond. Here, Drummond is on the trail of Carl Petersen, a corrupt industrailist who has a bad habit of stealing the ideas of others and then killing them so he can reap the profits. The nefarious Petersen has a team of female assistants willing to kill on command, led by Irma and Penelope. One more Bulldog Drummond vehicle, Some Girls Do, followed in 1969 before the series was retired again. —AllRovi
Evidence that a standout cast does not a good movie make--how could I possibly *not* enjoy a British spy film from the sixties starring Richard Johnson and Elke Sommer and Sylva Koscina AND Nigel Green? Johnson seems fairly uninterested (or, at least unenergized) in his role as the judo-chopping, don juan-ing agent--I kept waiting for his character's charisma to start, to turn on. Both Sommer and Koscina are
kind-of interesting riffs on the Bond girl template--the murder and bomb detonation on the plane at the beginning, orchestrated by a completely amoral and unapologetic Sommer, is a highlight--but their tit-for-tat cattiness becomes tiresome before long ... and Green as the ultimate supervillain just never seems to rise to the occasion (despite the fact of how villainous and oily he could be in film's like *Ipcress*).
The film also suffers from not knowing what kind of tone it wants to strike. There's a lot of kitschy, sex-comedy-type stuff going on (especially via the character of Drummond's nephew), and this tends to clash with the more dramatic thriller/espionage stuff. Even a room-sized, voice-activated death-chess set can't quite save the day...
