Once again, Bulldog Drummond (John Howard) tries to marry his sweetheart Phyllis (Heather Angel), this time in the manor of his ancestors, but quite naturally, the trouble follows him everywhere, this time in the form of professor Downie (Forrester Harvey), an absent minded but ki9nd hearted man who just happens to own an ancient diary that reveals a treasure dungeon somewhere beneath Drummond's ancestral mansion ... but unfortunately it is written in a code the professor still has to decipher, & even more unfortunately, the professor fears that his ex-assistant gone rogue Seaton is after the diary - what's most unfortunately though is that Seaton, under a false name, has been hired as a butler in the Drummond household ... & of course Seaton (Leo G.Carroll) kills the professor in the very night before Drummond's wedding ...

Drummond's friend Col.Nielson (H.B.Warner) of Scotland Yard of course soon has the premises sealed off by his men, so Seaton, to fake a getaway, kills one of the policeman guarding the mansion & fakes a getaway, while he calmly climbs back into the mansion on some ivy ... it is only the next day that Drummond, Nielson, Drummond's sidekick Algie (Reginald Denny) & his head butler Tenny (E.E.Clive) discover a few rather curious things while investigating: There are no actual traces of the killer getting away, the ivy seems to be very convenient to reach one of the windows & seems to have been used recently (for climbing), & then there's the dead body of a man who was supposed to be Drummond's butler instead of Seaton ...

Seaton though has meanwhile found the secret entrance to the treasure dungeon, & has taken Phyllis with him to look for the treasure as a hostage. Drummond & co are of course not far behind, so Seaton uses every trick & trap available in the dungeon to stop them (like lowering spikes onto them & such). In the end though it is Phyllis who caqn stop him by throwing his treasure into the raging canal below them, & foolishly enough he jumps after it ...

 

As with most Bulldog Drummond films, the mystery as such is neither especially good nor original, but the film is saved by some lively acting, eccentric characters & the refusal to take itself tooo seriously, & the film ultimately delivers an hour of light entertainment.
