Crook's Tour is a British comedy film from 1940 starring Basil Radford and Naunton Wayne as two comical Englishmen, Charters and Caldicott. The film also stars Greta Gynt as a mysterious woman named Sigrid who becomes tangled up in their misadventures. The film begins with Charters and Caldicott on a train bound for Istanbul, hoping to catch a cricket match between England and Romania. Their journey takes an unexpected turn when they mistakenly board the wrong train and end up on a luxury liner headed for Paris. On board, they meet Sigrid, who introduces herself as a wealthy Swedish woman. Despite their initial attraction to her, Charters and Caldicott begin to suspect that Sigrid may not be all she seems.

Their suspicions are confirmed when they witness her removing a package from a locker on board the ship in the dead of night. Determined to discover the truth, the two Englishmen follow Sigrid to Paris, where they find themselves embroiled in a dangerous game of espionage.

As Charters and Caldicott attempt to recover the stolen package and clear their names, they find themselves pursued by a gang of ruthless criminals. But with their trademark stiff upper lips and quick thinking, the Englishmen are able to outwit the bad guys and save the day.

Crook's Tour is a classic example of British comedy from the golden age of cinema. Radford and Wayne's performances as Charters and Caldicott are highly entertaining, with their witty banter and bumbling antics providing plenty of laughs. Gynt is also impressive as the femme fatale, adding a touch of glamour and intrigue to the film.

The film's plot is fairly simple, but it is well-executed with plenty of twists and turns to keep the audience engaged. The contrast between the refined English gentlemen and the seedy criminal underworld also adds an interesting element to the story.

One of the highlights of Crook's Tour is the stunning location shots, which capture the beauty and grandeur of Paris and Istanbul in the 1940s. The film also features charming and humorous animated sequences which break up the action and add a whimsical touch.

Overall, Crook's Tour is an enjoyable and entertaining film which showcases some of the best of British comedy. Radford and Wayne's performances are timeless and the film's mix of adventure, romance, and humor make it a classic that is still beloved by audiences today.
