British hunter Thorndike vacationing in Bavaria has Hitler in his gun sight. He is captured, beaten, left for dead, and escapes back to London where he is hounded by German agents and aided by a young woman.
The original novel, Rogue Male, is written in first-person narrative and protagonist's name is never given. Characters such as Jerry, Lord Risborough, and Lady Risborough were created for the film.
Today, Europe. Tomorrow, the world.
As Thorndike is being chased through ye olde London town, and we know it is London because some pearly kings (with the sort of execrable cockney accents that Dick Van Dyke would later utilise) pass him in a cobbled and foggy street. The pub in the back ground has batwing doors of the sort found in western saloons in the US. No pub in Great Britain has doors like that. They have proper doorways that keep the rain, fog, snow and general misery, out.
