Some Girls Do is a 1969 British comedy spy film directed by Ralph Thomas. It was the second of the revamped Bulldog Drummond films made following the success of the James Bond films of the 1960's.

The film stars Richard Johnson as the detective. Johnson had played the role in the earlier film Deadlier Than the Male (1966). The movie replicated the earlier film's formula of having Drummond's nemesis Carl Petersen backed up by two sexy villainesses. This time round, the bad girls were Baroness Helga, played by Daliah Lavi, and Pandora, played by Beba Loncar. Sydne Rome provided back-up for Drummond as a sexy hanger-on named Flicky.

Drummond is hired after a series of inexplicable accidents befall the people and companies who are responsible for developing the world's first supersonic airliner, the SST1. Drummond, with the help of another agent, uncovers a plot by a mastermind named Carl Petersen, who stands to gain eight million pounds if the aircraft is not ready by a certain date. Petersen has developed a number of robots: beautiful girls with electronic brains to help him sabotage the SST1 project by means of infrasound (sound waves with too low frequency to be detected by the human ear) which can be directed at people or objects with devastating results.

Production

Joanna Lumley, who appears as one of Petersen's female robots in this film, was also working on the set of "Her Majesty's Secret Service" at the same time, as both films were produced at Pinewood Studios.
