Working from quartet of Eugene O’Neill plays, John Ford created a hauntingly dark dramatic universe, populated with his usual stock company of players augmented by John Wayne in the role of the naïve Swedish sailor Olsen.
Edward G. Robinson pursues a nazi war criminal named Franz Kindler. He thinks it’s the kindly college professor played by Orson Welles. Only a dead man can link him to the crimes… or is it his own obsessions that will finally be his undoing. If you haven’t caught this film, this is a keeper in the realm of public domain films.
Glenn Ford stars as an American paratrooper GI who travels to France after the end of WWII to try and recover a jewel encrusted glove that had been stolen from a country church during the war. His quest leads him to a beautiful young tour guide (Geraldine Brooks), and a Nazi collaborator (George Macready) whom he had fought during the war. The movie was shot mostly on location in France and Monaco.
