The Lady in the Road, and the Dead Man in the Marsh
Reginald Alfred John Truscott-Jones was born in Neath, Glamorgan, Wales in 1907, near the riverside street of Milland Road. As a young man Reginald spent four years in the elite Household Cavalry, guarding the British Royal Family, where he became expert in riding, fencing, boxing and shooting. As an actor, he chose the name Ray Milland, and became the first Welsh actor to receive an Oscar when he won the Best Actor Oscar in 1945.
In this adventure he is Captain Hugh ‘Bulldog’ Drummond, a wealthy young man who is always in search of adventure and beautiful women. As our adventure opens, he has just returned to England to visit his best friend, who is in hospital. While at the hospital, Commissioner Nielson from Scotland Yard calls him and asks him to come quickly, because there is something that Bulldog Drummond must absolutely do for the sake of Scotland Yard and England.
Driving through the thick fog towards his country estate to meet the man from Scotland Yard, a young woman suddenly runs into the road and stands directly in front of his car. Bulldog Drummond slams on the brakes, barely missing the young lady, who has fainted by the side of the road.
Gallant Bulldog Drummond gently lifts the girl and puts her in the back seat of his car, but suddenly he hears a blood-curdling scream for help from the nearby marsh. Running over, he sees a man lying on the ground at the edge of the marsh, and his face is frozen in a fearsome look of death.
Before he can do anything, he hears the engine of his car starting up, and running back to the road, discovers that the young lady has driven away in his car. Now stranded on a lonely road in the thick fog, he begins the long walk to his country estate, with many questions, and precious few answers. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
