The film has a really fine cast. Leslie Banks plays the villain Zaroff and is suitably sinister without using histrionics. Joel McCrea shows why he would remain a leading man for the next thirty years and more. He had real star quality and a quiet acting ability similar to that of Gary Cooper. Fay Wray is delightful in a role which gives her more to do than just scream.
The Criterion DVD is very good indeed. The print is superb. There is some occasional damage, but it is hardly noticeable. The images are nearly always clear and sharp and show off the black and white photography very well. Best of all however is the sound quality. Many early talkies have terrible sound with indistinct dialogue and lots of background noise. This DVD has great sound and Criterion should really be congratulated. The DVD also has an audio commentary track by film historian Bruce Eder. His commentary is worth listening to as he is obviously enthusiastic and well informed about The Most Dangerous Game.
As the action opens we see big game hunter Bob Rainsford (Jole McCrea), who is also an author of hunting books, travelling with his group on a ship towards his next worldwide port of call. The Captain approaches a strange set of lighted markers in the water which somehow seem in the wrong spaces and very soon the boat has crashed into a reef and sunk leaving Bob the only survivor after a vicious shark attack removes all the others that survived the sinking of the boat.Read more ›
