The action of Bullshot Crummond takes place in 1930’s England. An irreverent spoof of cliché detective B-movies, this hilarious comedy ambitiously stages wild thrills and spills traditionally reserved for the screen: plane crashes, car chases, icy mountain cliff hangers, sword fights, and even a naval sea battle. Bullshot typifies British heroism. Teutonic villain Otto von Brunno and his evil mistress crash their plane in the English countryside and kidnap Professor Fenton who has discovered a formula for making synthetic diamonds. Bullshot Crummond is called to the rescue. Otto paralyzes Crummond with a fiendish ray. He rams a stick of dynamite in Crummond’s mouth which will explode when the next person enters the room. Rosemary enters, but the static electricity in her fur wrap averts the detonation. They pursue in a hair raising car chase, but plunge over a cliff. They sneak into the dungeons where the professor is being tortured, but Crummond hopelessly loses the ensuing saber duel. Unperturbed, Crummond finally triumphs by shooting the rest of the cast.
