      Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Standard thriller, that has a few twists but bogs down over too many hysterical melodramatic moments. Rated: C+ Jan 23, 2011 Full Review Read all reviews

      Martin B Done in a period of formula movies this one is different. A quirky movie with an unusual premice. Good cast, good scene locations in France. Hard to tell what direction the plot was going. Was the ending melodramatic you bet. Illogical script writing like forgetting to ask for the bag the very thing he came to France to find. The impossible chase scene over done. But in the end there was a noble logic to the plot with a satisfying ending right up the alley of Glen Ford. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/22/23 Full Review joe m Interesting yet uneven 1952 film "The Green Glove" is a rather contrived tale of an ancient knight's gauntlet with spiritual powers. During WW II while Mike Blake (Glenn Ford), an American paratrooper, landed behind enemy lines in occupied France he forestalled the theft of the glove by giving it to a French countess for safe keeping. Fast forward seven years and Mike is back in France to re-claim the glove, yet the original thief/Nazi collaborator is on his trail. The movie is really too long, bogged down with a silly interlude at an inn and a mountain chase scene that is totally preposterous. Passable, but just barely. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review kevin w Filmed over in beautiful France, Ford plays a returning GI who knows the location of a priceless religious relic stolen during WW2. George Macready is the Nazi who stole it, and now wants it back. The bodies are mounting up, and then there's this friendly French tour guide who's very helpful ... good times over in Europe, yah sure. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Bland actioner obviously shot on the cheap. Not terrible but something that has been done many times before. One of the many programmers Ford churned out on his climb, at least for a while, to the top. It's nice to see Geraldine Brooks, better known for her stage and TV work but always an engaging presence, in a rare film lead. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Glenn Ford lends a lot to this movie, it's a good mystery, great French settings. The light romance thrown in seems out of place at times, but overall the movie is good. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member This film can't make up it's mind. At times it feels like a romantic comedy, then adventure, then thriller, then action...what the hell is it? Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews
