When The Male of the Species aired, I was a college student, home on vacation, and watched with my mother. We were positively glued to the TV set. Sean Connery, known at that time (1969) to American audiences only as 007 in the early James Bond films, showed a bit of his acting range to good advantage. Michael Caine had a big hit in the USA a few years earlier with Alfie, but it was this television role that made him one of my favorite actors. If you were to ask me about any other television shows, specials, or series from 1967-1971 I would be hard pressed to come up with even one. If anyone can find a tape of this outstanding show, please make it available for airing or for purchase!! I believe James Mason was also in this one, in a small role at the end...can anyone confirm?
