I had never seen this film until recently.

Glenn Ford stars as a solider in WW2 who returns to France after the war and finds himself accused of murder while at the same time, trying to return a valuable artifact to a monastery.

Count Paul Rona (George Macready) is a man who will do anything including murder to own the Green Glove. Ford meets a young woman named Chris (Geraldine Brooks) who becomes entangled in his life and murder as well.

Rudolph Mate directed this and the plot moves along very well and is well acted. I have read that it should have included more sex and violence, but I think it is fine the way it is.

The final chase scene between Ford and Macready is excellent and perfectly done. The print from Mill Creek is acceptable and very watchable.

The rest of the cast includes lovely Gaby Andre and Cedric Hardwicke. Recommended for mystery fans.
