It's Not Cricket

A comedic trifle with Charters & Caldicott, in all but name only (copyright issues) as ex-Army Intelligence men in mostly accidental pursuit of the Nazi spy whose escape got them demobbed. Some drollery mixed in with the slapstick gets the most chuckles, but it's pleasing enough. At least Basil and Naunton finally get to play cricket! They reprised their roles as Bright & Early, albeit uncredited, in Helter Skelter the same year.
