Rosebud Information

Rosebud is a 1975 film directed by Otto Preminger, and starring Peter O'Toole, Richard Attenborough, and Peter Lawford. The script was by Otto's son, Erik Lee Preminger based on the novel by Joan Hemingway and Paul Bonnecarrere. Originally the film was set to star Robert Mitchum, but he left after disagreements with Preminger. Kim Cattrall, later of Sex and the City fame, makes her film debut, playing a teenager. Barbara Emerson, who had been cast as one of the girls , was replaced during production.


Larry Martin (O'Toole) is a Newsweek reporter, secretly working for the CIA. He is tasked, along with Israeli intelligence, to work for the release of five wealthy girls kidnapped by the PLA from the yacht Rosebud. Martin must contend with the girls' fathers, all of whom are wealthy, connected and concerned. Sloat (Attenborough), the head of Black September, is connected with the kidnappings, and is subsequently hunted down.
