The green glove

The Green Glove: A movie set after World War II, starring Glenn Ford as Michael Blake, an ex-soldier hired by a church to find a valuable relic (a bejeweled green glove) stolen years earlier by an ex-Nazi thief. Blake is shadowed by others who are trying to kill him, and is aided by an attractive tour guide, Christine (Geraldine Brooks), who joins him as they travel across Europe in search of the glove.

What they didn’t know is that it’s been here, in Boise, all along. Right in plain sight (although it looks like the jewels were torn off and sold long ago, probably to a pawn shop).

Of course, it wouldn’t have been nearly as romantic or suspenseful to travel across Idaho, Utah and Nevada in search of religious relic, so Europe won out. What a shame.
