Directed by Ralph Thomas
UK 1969

 

Richard Johnson returns as Hugh 'Bulldog' Drummond in this action-packed take on the exploits of H.C. McNeile's famous fictional hero - this time with an added dose of late '60s whimsy when Drummond comes up against a gang of armed, gorgeous fembots! Some Girls Do is presented here as a new High Definition transfer from original film elements in its original aspect ratio.

Drummond is hot on the trail of his nemesis, the devious Carl Petersen, who is hell-bent on sabotaging the new British fighter airplane. Peterson must be stopped - whatever the cost - but this time he's protected by a bodyguard of murderous female androids!

***

A series of unexplainable accidents befall the people and companies responsible for developing the world's first supersonic airliner. A British agent is sent to investigate and with the help of another agent uncovers a plot masterminded by Carl Petersen who stands to gain eight million pounds if the aircraft is not ready by a certain date.

NOTE: The below Blu-ray captures were taken directly from the Blu-ray disc.

ADDITION: Network Blu-ray (April 2020): Network have transferred Ralph Thomas' Some Girl Do to Blu-ray. It has Richard Johnson reprising his role of Hugh "Bulldog" Drummond form the same director's 1967, also cheesecake-filled, spy-spoof Deadlier Than the Male with smoking Elke Sommer and Sylva Koscina. Some Girls Do has increases the babe-count with undeniably pretty Daliah Lavi, Sydne Rome, Beba Loncar, and repeating her eye-candy screen presence from the previous film, Virginia North. The 1080P transfer is housed on a single-layered disc with a reasonable bitrate. The image quality doesn't seem as tight and crisp as some may have been anticipated. It looks darn good in-motion on my system. Colors are true but marginally dampened. There is no depth and the grain nosily clumps. It's not a great HD presentation but it's a consistent one and pleasing if you don't pull out the magnifying glass.

On their Blu-ray, Network use a linear PCM mono track (16-bit) in the original English language. There is depth notable in boat and plane scenes, gunfire and the score by Charles Blackwell (not a ton on his resume but he did do some TV episodes of The Edgar Wallace Mystery Theatre but might be more notable as the songwriter of "Something Wicked This Way Comes" which was used in David Lynch's Lost Highway.) Blackwell wrote the film's 'theme' Some Girls Do with lyrics by Don Black and lounge-ily sung by Lee Vanderbilt. Network offer optional English subtitles on their Region 'B' Blu-ray.

The Network Blu-ray includes as supplements a theatrical trailer and 4 galleries - a general, very extensive one, with posters, title cards stills, one with some behind the scenes glossies, artists tests with costuming and the like and portraits with many of the attractive cast.

Personally, I like these 60's Bond rips with sexy gals and grandiose 'tongue-in-cheek' stunts. Some Girls Do has plenty to like; a fun thriller, the fembot angle and I think Johnson does a good job as our hero/protagonist. The Network Blu-ray is good for a double feature showing with their own Deadlier Than the Male. A keeper for me.
