THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME (1932) *** ½

The year before they introduced the world to King Kong, Ernest B. Schoedsack and Merian C. Cooper gave us this entertaining adaptation of Richard Connell’s short story in which Count Zaroff (Leslie Banks) hunts Joel McCrea on a deserted island. The durable story has been ripped off, remade and reused several times (Bloodlust, Hard Target, Surviving the Game, etc.) but this is the first and the best. Kong stars Fay Wray and Robert Armstrong also appears, and Kong composer Max Steiner also did the music.
