Rosebud ★ 1975 (PG)

Embarassingly dull film finds a group of PLO terrorists kidnapping five young women who were vacationing aboard O'Toole's yacht. He's supposedly a journalist but actually works for the CIA. Action pingpongs between the plight of the victims and what's being done to rescue them but it's so boring you won't care. “Rosebud” is the name of the yacht. Based on a novel by Joan Hemingway and Paul Bonnecarrere. 126m/C VHS . Peter O'Toole, Richard Attenborough, Kim Cattrall, Brigitte Ariel, Isabelle Huppert, Lalla Ward, Deborah Berger, Cliff Gorman, Claude Dauphin, Peter Lawford, Raf Vallone, Adrienne Corri; D: Otto Preminger; W: Eric Lee Preminger, Marjorie Kellogg.
