The "crowning touch" of the title is a fancy woman's hat. It has been specially set aside at a posh British headwear shoppe, but no one comes to claim it. At this point the film takes a prismatic approach, with three of the shoppe's employees offering different reasons as to why the pretty young girl who'd ordered the hat never showed up. The Crowning Touch is a serviceable British shaggy-dog story, graced by the presence of such top talents as Greta Gynt, Griffith Jones, Sydney Tafler, Dermot Walsh and Irene Handl.
