  2. Thank you for your kind words Chad. I’ve actually had a pretty good Christmas so far, I hope yours has been just as enjoyable.

  3. My personal favorites for pro-capitalist and anti-capitalist propaganda cartoons are 1948’s “Make Mine Freedom” and 1963’s “The Millionaire” from the Soviet Union, during which I confess to rooting for the bulldog. Speaking of which, would it be fair to say that Bulldog Drummond was getting rather long in the canines by the Swinging Sixties?

  4. It is notable that Bulldog Drummond hasn’t been see on screen since these two outings. We haven’t even had a ‘re-imagined’ version along the lines of ‘Sherlock’. He just has too much baggage that, if removed or significantly modified in any way turns the character into a cipher. By contrast, the Bond producers have managed to keep 007 ‘updated’, despite his Cold War origins. (I’d like to say Bond was never as much of a racist or Imperialist as Drummond, but I recently re-read ‘You Only Live Twice’ and to say that some sections resulted in a ‘raised eyebrow’ would be an understatement).
