The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot
The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot   “A remarkable title and a remarkable
  film; this rip-roaring adventure movie
  in the form of a unique, genre-bending
  production that follows a legendary
  American war hero from his youth,
  when he assassinated Adolf Hitler, to
  his twilight years, when he takes on
  his second notorious adversary, could
  be both a war film and monster film
  and is entitled intriguingly The Man Who
  Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot
...”


SERVING IN THE SECOND WORLD WAR, Calvin Barr (played in his youth by television heartthrob Aidan Turner: Poldark; The Hobbit Trilogy) becomes an international hero when he assassinates Adolf Hitler and rids the world of a serious risk to world peace.

After the war, Calvin returns to his gentle pace of life in New England. He recalls the part he played in the death of Hitler and mourns his lost love, Maxine (Caitlin Fitzgerald: Masters of Sex; It's Complicated), whom he intended to marry but missed an opportunity to propose.

The Man Who
Killed Hitler And Then
The Bigfoot…
an intriguing, clever
and highly watchable
re-imagining of
history...”
He is living comfortably with his dog for company at his home, when a gang of thugs try to rob him. However, as they soon discover, despite his age Calvin has lost none of his tough-guy abilities.

Decades after the war the FBI and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police track down Calvin (now played by the lovely Sam Elliott: A Star is Born; The Big Lebowski) to persuade him to lead the attempt to capture an elusive, deadly plague-carrying beast known as Bigfoot that is a threat to human lives. Although reluctant as he has vowed never to kill either man or creature again, he finally agrees.

Deep inside the Canadian wilderness, Calvin prepares to face the dangerous creature. But will he be able to find the Bigfoot before it is too late to stop the spread of the deadly plague it carries?

A little bizarre (in a good way!) but both the youthful Aidan Turner and a seasoned Sam Elliott carry it off so well that The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot becomes an intriguing, clever and highly watchable re-imagining of history.

Appealing to fans of war films or monster movies; a little romance thrown in and a desperate race to prevent a large-scale epidemic. Get set for a mind-bending journey as one man takes on two dangerous enemies: one in his youth and the second in his later years to become The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot.
