Bullshot is a 1983 film, based on the stage play Bullshot Crummond. The name comes from a parody of the 1929 film, on which it is loosely based, Bulldog Drummond.

Captain Hugh "Bullshot" Crummond (Alan Shearman) is a World War I fighter pilot, Olympic athlete, racing driver, and part-time sleuth. He must save the world from the dastardly Count Otto van Bruno (Ronald E. House), his wartime adversary, and win the heart of the damsel in distress (Diz White).

The film was produced by George Harrison's company Handmade Films.

Alan Shearman would reprise his association with Handmade Films in their 1985 film Water.

Trivia[edit]

Both Alan Shearman and Ronald E. House also appeared in Escape from New York as dancers.
