39 Steps meets The Maltese Falcon
21 June 2009 | by (Ramsey, NJ) – See all my reviews

Was pleasantly surprised by this one. More exciting than I had expected, it holds your interest throughout save for one instance. The normally bland Glenn Ford was effective and compelling as the returning WWII soldier trying to find the valuable icon in question and George Macready was a convincing 'bad guy'.

The instance in question, during which the picture throws out its anchor, wastes about 15 minutes of screen time as Ford and Geraldine Brooks do a 39 Steps-like turn as a pretend-married couple. Donat and Carroll did it better, but in "The Green Glove" it gave a comedic touch to a film which did not need it.

I thought the scenery and the location shots were spectacular, particularly a chase over a goat path high in the mountains. Director Mate was in his oeuvre here as he was an excellent photographer but an average director. But the scenery and several other shots made me wish I could have seen this one on the big screen.
