Bullshot is a 1983 British comedy film, based on the stage play Bullshot Crummond. The name comes from a parody of the 1929 film Bulldog Drummond with the lead character having elements of Drummond and Biggles.
Captain Hugh "Bullshot" Crummond is a World War I fighter pilot, Olympic athlete, racing driver, and part-time sleuth. He must save the world from the dastardly Count Otto van Bruno, his wartime adversary, and win the heart of the damsel in distress Rosemary Fenton.
The film was produced by George Harrison's company Handmade Films. Shearman and White reprised their roles from the stage play.
Colin Greenland reviewed Bullshot for Imagine magazine, and stated that "it is pell-mell, hammer and tongs, hell for leather all the way through a plot that gets more deliciously ludicrous by the second. Superb (over-)acting in spiffing costumes on scrummy sets, not a few guffaws, and comic cameos from Billy Connolly, Mel Smith, John Wells and 'Legs' Larry Smith."
