Customer Reviews

In one photo one can just barely make out who's on it.
Hildegard Brosseau
The script, unfortunately, depends far too often on coincidence and luck.
C. O. DeRiemer
The "Green Glove" was returned mysteriously, only a dead man nearby.

Format: DVD
Here's a good example of a film with first rate potential which was made by journeymen artists. Most of the actors do good jobs, and a few are very good. Glenn Ford as Michael Blake plays a standard action hero but he does it with charm. George Macready as Count Paul Rona always makes a smooth villain. Some of the smaller parts are well handled; Cedric Hardwicke as Father Goron, Gaby Andre as Rona's mistress, Jany Holt as the Countess. The film was shot in Paris, the south of France and Monte Carlo and it's pleasant to view the towns and the scenery. The script, unfortunately, depends far too often on coincidence and luck. The music is predictable. Cliches are used as shorthand. There is one long sequence where the two unmarried leads find themselves having to stay at a country inn where there is only one room. The coy innuendo is tiresome; the situation is as old as the hills and has been done far better by others. And while Blake is supposed to be down on his luck, he seems to have no problem paying his hotel, food, bar and train bills. By the end of the movie, when there is a rousing climb up a rocky, steep mountain and a shootout in the belfry of an old stone church, it's hard to really care much because so much of the movie has been predictable. Also a factor is that The Green Glove fell into the public domain. It's watchable, but not much better than that. A better DVD transfer might have helped because of the importance of the locations. There are no extras.

Michael Blake (Ford) has come to France to locate the jeweled gauntlet of St. Elizaire, the green glove, a holy relic that was stolen from a small church during World War II. Blake had encountered the relic and the thief, Count Paul Rona (Macready), when he landed during a parachute jump near a chateau in 1944.

A saint's stolen glove, a holy relic, touches believer's lives but belongs back in its resting place in the church. A gem encrusted antiquity, its earthly value contrasts with its healing force . To return it or cash in is a temptation to overcome.
Glenn Ford is an American in France after the war trying to foil George MacCready's attempt to possess the glove and its power. The chase over the rugged landscape of southern France is on, by foot, car and train. A haunting musical score with an unforgettably nostalgic theme along with forthright black and white photography make this film one of my personal favorites.
Simple faith is pitted against sophisticated cunning in a beautifully done film. I saw the movie when I was 9 and I'm now 60. It still moves me the same way it did back in 1952.

"This one" refers to the [supposedly] remastered DVD edition of A2zcds. I just bought it and IT IS AWFUL! Ditto for the soundtrack. The picture quality is equal to that of a bad video. Dark and murky and full of "moth holes".[Large white spots, commonly referred to as snow]. For the first 40 minutes or so, it was hard to figure out what was going on, or who was who, as the picture was so bad that one just couldn't see, never mind make out details. On top of that, lovely Geraldine Brooks was very unfavourable photographed and Glenn Ford looked as though he hadn't slept for days. [Which may not be that far from the truth --]. During the lengthy chase scene up the mountain side at the end, it is so dark that you just have to guess what's going on. And naturally, one thinks it is night time. But no, suddenly we're in broad daylight. Or maybe the moon came up real bright or something. But by that time you don't care anymore, since the whole thing is a mess anyway. Aside from the technical flaws, the scrip leaves a lot to be desired also. It is all over the place and utterly confusing.
Should you still want to buy this DVD, there are 3 photographs on the back of the box the disc comes in. In one photo one can just barely make out who's on it. The other two are just black, or nearly so. That will give you a pretty good idea of what the movie is like.
Well, you win some, you lose some. And this one is a dead loss. A waste of time and money.

Glenn Ford stars in this low budget obscure movie with him coming across an art dealer (George Macready) who has a Green Glove (an emerald glove) during WW2. It gets lost during a bomb explosion. Glenn Ford retrieves the glove years later. He is also framed for murder and being tracked down by the French police. This wasn't anything special. It sounded more interesting that it was. The DVD from Alpha is decent. Basically they get the transfer as is, with no touchups and just get it on DVD - so if they get the rights to a movie that has a good transfer, then the transfer will be good. It might be worth renting to some, Glenn Ford completests should give it a try, but dont expect an all time classic. It is not awful, just nothing special either.
