Man Hunt (1941) DVD9
Captain Alan Thorndike (Walter Pidgeon), a famous English big-game hunter, gets Hitler in the sights of his hunting rifle at Berchtesgaden and pulls the trigger on an empty chamber. Loading his rifle he is distracted and then set upon by one of Hitler's guards. Brought before a SS Major (George Sanders) who happens to be a fellow hunter, Thorndike insists that his actions were simply in the spirit of a 'sporting stalk' and he had no intention of shooting the Fuhrer.
The Nazis torture Thorndike, in an attempt to get him to sign a confession that he was plotting to assassinate Hitler for the British government, in order to achieve a propaganda coup. Thorndike refuses and the Nazis stage an 'accident' by pushing him off a cliff. Thorndike survives and returns to England but is pursued by the Major, posing as an Englishman, Quive-Smith, and various Gestapo thugs. He is befriended by Jerry Joan Bennett, a tart with a heart, and attempts to disappear, so that the Nazi propaganda machine cannot implicate him and, by association, the British government.
