Cast

Production

The Bulldog Drummond series had been popular B movies before the war. 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, starting with Bulldog Drummond at Bay, with an option to provide six more.[6] In November 1946, it was announced that Drummond would be played by Ron Randell, an Australian actor who was signed to a long term contract with Columbia off the back of his performance in Smithy.[7][8]

In February 1947 it was announced the second Drummond film was Bulldog Drummond Strikes Back.[9] The following month Frank MacDonald signed to direct[10] and Gloria Henry was announced as Randell's co star.[11]

Filming started May 1947.[12]
