    Was Margery Allingham deliberately parodying the sort of Bulldog Drummond-style blood-and-thunder that so many people took seriously back in the 1930s? It is certainly the case that this Campion episode is amongst the most outrageously plotted of all of them, and the actors take the whole thing in their stride. We have jolly good chaps facing up to bounders and winning against all logic, and one feels like cheering. Compressing the book into a hundred or so minutes has presented a few problems, but the hell-for-leather pace covers up a good many structural awkwardnesses whilst emphasising the utter silliness of it all. And that's as it should be.moreless
