Bulldog Drummond at Bay is a 1947 American thriller film directed by Sidney Salkow and starring Ron Randell, Anita Louise, Patrick O'Moore and Terry Kilburn.[1] The film is loosely based on the novel Bulldog Drummond at Bay by H. C. McNeile.[2]


When thieves rob his country estate, Bulldog Drummond uncovers a deadly jewel caper involving foreign agents trying to steal plans for a top-secret British aircraft.



In June 1946 it was announced Venture Pictures, a Columbia producing unit headed by Lou Appleton and Bernard Small, had done a deal with the estate of H.C. McNeile to make two Bulldog Drummond pictures (the last one had been Bulldog Drummond's Secret Police (1939)).[3]

Critical reception[edit]

Leonard Maltin called the film an "innocuous British 'quota quickie'" [4]
