Description by OLDIES.com:

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.

Rating 3.0 Bewildered Movie Lover: from Middle Village, NY US -- September, 17, 2009

A rather bewildered Peter O'Toole plays a British aristocrat who fails in an attempt to assassinate Hitler just prior to the start of WWII. He is captured and tortured but manages to escape. His uncle (Alastair Sim - always enjoyable to see his work) is a member of the government that refuses to acknowledge anything about the act.Hunted by English pro-Nazies, he literally goes to ground - living in a hole - and is trapped there by his pursuers. It all comes out OK in the end, but O'Toole (or his character) seems lost through much of the film.
