The first of many official and unofficial screen versions of Richard Connell's The Most Dangerous Game was put together by producer Willis O'Brien and directors Ernest B. Schoedsack and Irving Pichel in 1932. Leslie Banks stars as loony Russian count Zaroff, a renowned big-game hunter who tires of stalking animals and begins hunting down the "most dangerous game"-human beings. Luring unwary victims to his remote island, Zaroff wines and dines them, gives them a few hours' head start to run into

The movie is melodramatic, the acting stiff, and the music overwrought; yet I'm sure that's exactly why audiences liked the movie in the first place and why we find it so much fun today.
The film initially teases its viewers as much as Zaroff does his guests (we finally see what's in his basement, and it ain't pretty) before storming full-barrel into the hunt, a potent half-hour packed with all manner of close calls and great escapes.
One of the best suspense films ever made.
Realizado simultaneamente a King Kong (com o qual divide vários membros do elenco e equipe), é um filme que estabelece um clima incômodo de apreensão ainda hoje.
Superior thriller shot on the King Kong jungle sets. A few truly gruesome scenes.
Some modern lightweight films could learn a cinematic lesson from directors Irving Pichel and Ernest Schoedshack's sixty-three-minute running time

- Count Zaroff: Kill, then love. When you have known that, you have known ecstasy.
