Rogue Male (Dual Format Edition)


Peter O’Toole stars in this thrilling adventure, based on Geoffrey Household's cult novel, as aristocrat on the run after a failed attempt on the life of Adolf Hitler

- +

In early 1939, with the Second World War looming, aristocrat Sir Robert Hunter (Peter O’Toole) attempts to avert the impending catastrophe by assassinating Adolf Hitler. But his mission fails. Captured by the Gestapo and left for dead, Sir Robert survives his torture but is hunted by both the British and German authorities on his return to England and must use his wits and guile to survive.

Based on Geoffrey Household's cult thriller, Rogue Male is a suspenseful action adventure featuring an exceptional lead performance by O’Toole and a superb supporting cast, including Alastair Sim, Harold Pinter and John Standing.
