Most Dangerous Game (1932)

Joel McCrea, Fay Wray
Irving Pichel, Ernest B. Schoedsack
Horror, Mystery
An eccentric hunter causes a ship to be wrecked on an island where he can indulge in his favorite sport: the hunting of humans! Leslie Banks stars as Zaroff, the hunter, while the rest of the cast includes Joel McCrea, Robert Armstrong, and Hollywood's greatest screamer, Fay Wray. The film was released before the Hays Code started dictating what actors could wear, so Wray and McCrea are shown running around the jungle in some surprisingly skimpy outfits. The jungle sets, incidentally, would be reused by RKO for King Kong! (BW)
