Political tumult story, involving Palestine Liberation Organization terrorist kidnapping, is a bland and unexciting film. Peter O’Toole heads the cast as a Briton, secret agenting for the U.S., who sorts out the crisis.

An episodic collage of long sequences which cross cut between the yacht heist of five young wealthy girls, and the efforts of their families and police to track down their kidnappers. O’Toole (who replaced Robert Mitchum after shooting began) is recruited from his CIA cover as a Newsweek International reporter to locate the girls and the PLO group.

O’Toole’s is among the few strong performances, but that isn’t saying much. As a foreign policy document, Rosebud at least will not cause controversy, because as a motion picture, it’s a crashing bore.
