THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME (the hounds of zaroff) (1932 U.S.) D: IRVING PICHEL/ERNEST B. SCHOEDSACK W: JAMES ASHMORE CREELMAN
It may not have dated that well, but this has been copied endlessly over the years. Joel McCrae and Fay Wray are the main victims shipwrecked on Zaroff (Leslie Bank)'s remote island where humans are hunted for sport. Worth a look for those who want to know where cliches start. With Robert Armstrong, Noble Johnson, William B. Davidson, James Flavin and Hale Hamilton. In b/w. Based on Richard Connell`s story. Schoedsack and Executive Producers Merian C. Cooper and David O. Selznick made KING KONG next (with some of the same jungle sets)
