A Brilliant Film,
This review is from: Man Hunt [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I was about nine when I first saw this on TV, I was scared witless by the fight in the London Underground. Seeing it almost forty years later I suppose you do notice things like Constance Bennet's improbable accent, as a child I thought Pearly Kings and Queens were like Scotsmen in kilts - not THAT unusual - but these B&W films need to be appreciated for what they achieved in their time.
Anyway it starts off with Walter P having a bet with himself as to whether he can get Hitler in the sight of his high powered hunting rifle (he can but being a gent he doesn't shoot) and getting caught on the way back and brought before evil nazi George Sanders. I can't say anymore,being a film about a manhunt rather than a story with a mystery and denouement commenting on it in detail would spoil it. Brilliant end to the manhunt though. If you enjoyed Hitchcock's 39 Steps you'll love this, and, conversely, if you didn't then I wouldn't buy this.
