Spencer P Included as a bonus feature in "The Lady Vanishes" Criterion Collection release, this takes its two bumbling comic relief characters and takes them on another espionage adventure, but while the comedic concept is all right, the plot holes and ending totally drive home how ridiculous it all is. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 11/27/23 Full Review Audience Member An obvious cash-in on popular characters (at that point in time), this is tedious, dull, and unfunny. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member A disappointing spinoff including the promising "Charters and Caldicott" characters from Hitchcock's "The Lady Vanishes". Filled with British banter and pointless song and dance numbers, "Crook's Tour" is a poor attempt to recycle crowd favorite characters in an uninteresting plot. Every simple trick is used, even the music montage/traveling by a line on the map scene. In the end this is a film to watch in context of "The Lady Vanishes", seeing how it sure wasn't a film I watched for enjoyment. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Fun little trek with several side characters from The Lady Vanishes taking the main billing. They are fun enough to keep the film's momentum throughout the duration.
