Even though Bulldog Drummond can be considered a prototype for the spies who would populate films and television throughout the fifties and even sixties, a strange thing occurred in 1966. Bulldog Drummond was revamped and remodelled to become a swinging sixties spy, well an insurance investigator actually, but none-the-less he became an imitation of the very thing he created. I haven’t written up a review for Deadlier Than The Male, but I will entrust you to the very safe hands of Tanner at the Double Section who has written two fantastic pieces about this seminal sixties action spy film.
