Mike Blake (Glenn Ford) is an American paratrooper who travels to France after the end of World War II to try to recover the jewel-encrusted glove that had been stolen from a country church during the war. His quest leads him to a beautiful young tour guide in Paris named Chris (Geraldine Brooks). A man who has been mysteriously following Mike is found dead in Mike’s hotel room. The man has a sketch drawing of Mike in his pocket. Mike tells the police he does not know the man and he is innocent. Chris has fallen for Mike and joins him when he did not ask for her help. Count Paul Rona (George Macready) is a Nazi collaborator and art dealer and is searching for the glove to sell it. Mike and the Count had a run-in near the end of the war. A French Resistance Countess helped Mike escape and as a thank you he left her his valise. Despite being followed by the police and Rona’s henchmen, Mike and Chris retrieve the glove in Monte Carlo.
