1929’s BULLDOG DRUMMOND was a straightforward detective thriller starring Ronald Colman as a former soldier whose yearning for adventure led to dangerous exploits. This sequel, while still quite suspenseful, offers a self-mocking, absurdist take on the detective genre that was nowhere to be found in the first film. Under the fast-paced direction of Roy Del Ruth, there’s a pronounced screwball influence here: A wedding night goes horribly wrong, bodies disappear and reappear, and Colman reacts to it all with a kind of bemused unflappability that goes beyond even Powell and Loy’s approach to detective work in the Thin Man series.
Directed by Roy Del Ruth
Starring Ronald Colman, Loretta Young.
