I thought the movie was excellent--better Hitchcock than most Hitchcock's I've seen. The locations were beautiful, I thought Ford and Brooks were very likable and nuanced. The plot was no thinner than many adventure flicks I've seen, and if one accepts that the glove really *is* touched by God, the movie takes on a really interesting dimension.
Excellent film. Riveting throughout.
