Product Details

Peter O'Toole stars as Robert Thorndyke, a renegade English aristocrat who attempts to assassinate Adolf Hitler. Thorndyke is captured by the SS and savagely tortured. Left for dead, the horribly injured man makes his escape. After a long and dangerous journey back to London, he is shocked to learn that he faces extradition to Germany to face charges - and a firing squad. With German agents trailing him, Thorndyke is forced to flee once again. A thrilling adventure of one man against the world, Rogue Male was written for the screen by Frederic Raphael, famed for the screenplays he wrote for Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut (1999), Stanley Donen's Two For The Road (1967), and John Schlesinger's Darling (1965), for which he earned an Oscar. Featuring a supporting cast that includes Alastair Sim and playwright Harold Pinter, Rogue Male is a literate and darkly witty action thriller made for BBC television in 1976.
