5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC companion piece for 'KING KONG'; 6 Sep 2008
Format:DVD
Made in tandem [in 1932] with RKO true classic 'KING KONG'-----[the two movies were shot 'day-and-night' using much of the same studio jungle sets]------this is a teriffic early talkie horror/suspense effort that is up there with many of the finest UNIVERSAL horrors from the same period.

Feauturing prime performances from FAY WRAY [no explanation of who she is neccessary] and ROBERT ARMSTRONG ['DENHAM', KONG'S showbiz charlatan captor] this views almost as a seperate thread to the classic events of KONG.

Also containing a memorable appearance by NOBLE JOHNSON [the tribal leader of the natives in KONG], here unrecognizable as baddie ZAROFF'S mute leading manservant. The plot recounts the tale of shipwrecked victims marooned on COUNT ZAROFF'S [LESLIE BANKS, in career-defining demonic form] tiny island, and after charmingly entertaining them [complete with 30s 'dinner suit' garb and choice wine]forces his victims to become his quarry in a sadistic jungle shooting chase.

I cannot overstate just how effectively staged the melodramatic atmosphere is presented here; practically every frame [discounting a routine first 3 minutes or so] is steeped in gothic, eerily-effective, relentless period drama, a true feast for fans of this material, with a driving pace, fantastic matte paintings and process shots clearly recognizable as being crafted by the selfsame team responsible for KONG: indeed, all that's really missing here [that would have cemented this movie's status] would have been a quick appearance from KONG himself!

4.0 out of 5 stars a most enjoyable film. 23 Sep 2009
Format:DVD
I was surprised how good this film was when i recently purchased it, as i do not remember seeing it before.As another reviewer mentions about the link with king kong i wont go into it.The only thing i can add is that the legend films version ,as shown in the graphics,has a very good colourised version,a restored b/w version and it also has a few featurettes ,1.ray harryhausen talks about the importance of a music score(2:30).2.james d`arc(curator of the merian c. cooper papers) is interviewed(4:29).3.john morgan(composer)talks about max steiner(7:14) and also trailers for "things to come"(1:39) and "she"(1:26).

4.0 out of 5 stars Most dangerous indeed 18 Oct 2010
By Inspector Gadget VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
"Until you've hunted men, you haven't hunted" -Jesse Ventura, April 2001.

The story of a hunter having the tables turned on him is overly familiar to today's audiences. The basic premise of Richard Connell's short story "The Most Dangerous Game" has also been reinvented as a Game of Death, Run for the Sun, Hard Target, Surviving the Game, The Running Man, and even Predator (starring the Governor Ventura himself). But the irony and purity of the story are exercised best in this 1932 quickie, made by the King Kong team, using the same cast members and sets. It's legacy has been somewhat overshadowed by the popularity of Kong, but don't let it slip away, The Most Dangerous Game is a game worth playing.

Robert Rainsford (Joel McCrea) is a big game hunter who is shipwrecked somewhere off the east coast of South America. He washes up on a beach of a lonely island and makes his way through the jungle where he is greeted by the eccentric Count Zaroff who has settled in a restored Portuguese fortress. The Count escaped Russia before the revolution and travelled the world hunting animals. But having killed all of the most savage he has grown bored and needs an animal with wits, cunning, and intelligence. Man; the most dangerous game of all.

Finding his match with Rainsford, the Count releases him into the jungle, along with the screaming Eve Trowbridge (Fay Wray), and promises him freedom if he can survive the next 24 hours. The sets, the Gothic atmosphere, and even the loneliness creates a wonderful atmosphere. As one of the first "talkies" the film is backed-up by a score (in a time when music really had to carry wordless motion pictures) that really stands out to me for several reasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars HUNT THIS DISC DOWN 17 Sep 2014
Format:DVD
This movie was made way back in 1932 with some of the sets and cast that was making KING KONG during the day and shooting this movie on a night.FAY WRAY and ROBERT ARMSTRONG were shooting KONG during the day and back on set shooting this movie on a night.Now about the movie i wont say to much as i dont want to spoil it for the buyer but will say it has humans being hunted.Now about the disc the print looks fantastic the b/w is nice and sharp and the sound is very good.This disc comes from ALPHA but dont let this put you of this time they have come up with a winner and the print here is as good as the one used by another company that costs a hell of a lot more than this.When this movie first came out in england it ran into a lot of trouble with the censor were all the scenes of the counts trophies were taken out but on this disc they are back in .So if you enjoy a good old b/w horror with a good print and a very low price then try this.Oh by the way this disc is REG 0 and not 1 as some adds say
