Bulldog Drummond Strikes Back (1934)

This fast and witty follow-up to the 1929 film has Colman's Drummond involved in the pursuit of a gang of kidnappers, and of Loretta Young.
with Loretta Young
The cast includes such accomplished character actors as C. Aubrey Smith (police inspector), Charles Butterworth (Drummond's amusing sidekick), and Warner Oland (of Charlie Chan fame) as the villain.

Colman had parted ways with the Goldwyn Studio and this was his first independent venture, with 20th Century Films. Critics at the time found this film more polished than its predecessor (sound techniques had improved considerably in 5 years), and gave it the somewhat double-edged complement: "scintillating without being particularly meaningful".
