- Rogue Male (1976 film)
"Rogue Male" is a 1976 film for television starring
Peter O'Toole, based on Geoffrey Household's novel, previously filmed in 1941 by Fritz Langas "Man Hunt".
Made by the
BBC, it was adapted by Frederic Raphaeland directed by Clive Donner, and also stars Alastair Sim, John Standingand Harold Pinter. It was first transmitted on 22 September 1976.
In a BBC Radio 4 interview on
26 January 2007, Peter O'Toole named this film as his favourite from his long career.
In early 1939, before the start of
World War II, Sir Robert Thorndyke (O' Toole) takes aim at Adolf Hitlerwith a high powered rifle, but misses when he is spotted and tackled by an SS guard. Captured and tortured by the Gestapo, he is then left for dead, but manages to make his way back to England where – to his shock – he discovers the Gestapo has followed him. Believing that the government would in all likelihood turn him over to German authorities, Sir Robert goes underground to escape his pursuers.
Some of the filming took place around King's Stag in Dorset and, notably, around the "Green Man" pub.
