    Gold ol' RKO, they never let you down, not only did they have Hollywood's coolest screen logo, love that beeping radio tower sitting atop the globe, but they had such a knack for producing gripping, concise and roughly polished pictures. I always say movie shouldn't come in at longer than ninety minutes unless it has a good excuse, this one comes in at sixty three minutes, it was the RKO way. In this movie, a boat is crashed on a dangerous reef before you're even in your seats, the villain is introduced and next thing you know, Fay Wray is running for her life through the jungle. Leslie Banks is a real crowd pleaser as Count Zaroff, the nefarious Cossack sportsman, who hunts humans on his private island. Being a pre-code movie he has a real sado-sexual edge which he plays with shameless abandon. All the parts are played with cartoonish glee and the sets look like lurid, comic book panels. Many of the sets and personnel from "King Kong" were used in this production and this movie shares much of the same appeal that made "King Kong" such a monumental movie, it taps into that childlike fascination and excitement with high adventure and cavalier danger. Four stars.

  • fun movie but more effective on the radio

    This was fun to watch but it was done more effectively on the radio in 1943 on Suspense with Orson Welles and Keenan Wynn.

    Doesn't TCM have monitors for spammers that abuse the review threads? There are also a few certain people who continually use the movie review threads to inject politics into every movie review they opine on.Give us a way to block the spammers and those that abuse the site.

    Before she as the sacrifice on Skull Island, Wray was the victim of a human monster in "The Most Dangerous Game." She and McCrea are trapped on an island and forced by Banks campy villain to be hunted. The sets used in this film would be used next year in "King Kong," this film is basically a stepping stone for the latter film. An exciting, but cheesy film from the people that would make "King Kong." I give it a 3.5/5.

  • The Most Dangerous Game(1932)Spoiler Alert

    Pre-King Kong tropical island Schoedsack vehicle with many of the stars from the classic film. Russian Count Zaroff(Leslie Banks) enjoys hunting human prey, and up til this point has never failed to bag his game, so to speak. Enter Bob Rainsford(Joel McCrea) the only survivor of a recent shipwreck. Also on the island are Eve Trowbridge(Fay Wray) her brother Martin(Robert Armstrong), and Ivan(Noble Johnson). Quite a cast. Well, the very off-center Count has a trophy room full of human heads, and wants more. Rainsford will be his final victim after a chase thru the Jungle with a time limt at 4:00 a.m. So, if he survives past that point, freedom reigns. But with a pack of hounds in pursuit and a trigger happy Count, not that easy. Uneven and slightly melodramatic , along with a score and sets that could have been in King Kong, not a bad attempt. Spoiler alert, a man gets stabbed to death with an arrow, well worth the price of admission. 4 stars out of 5.
