Hunter: Neville?
The Earl: Yes, Nev... The prime minister.
Hunter: Oh, him.
The Earl: Oh, I know I know. He may look like a middle-class denture salesman, but he got, after all, the post of his majesty's first minister.

A first-rate thriller receives a superior adaptation.
2 July 1999 | by (San Diego, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

"Rogue Male" is Geoffrey Household's finest thriller, and has long been one of my favorite books. I only discovered the existence of the film recently, and, sold by the screenwriter, director and cast listings, bought it sight-unseen, which I NEVER do. I was not disappointed. Cuts and changes were made, of course, the vast majority thoroughly justifiable. One or two others, while perhaps not strictly necessary, did no harm at all. The result was complete justice to the novel and a fine film!
