The Most Dangerous Game (1932)

The Most Dangerous Game is a 1932 film based on the short story of the same name by Richard Connell and concerns a shipwrecked man, Robert Rainsford (Joel McCrea) who is hunted on an island for sport by an evil Russian count (Leslie Banks). The film was shot concurrently on the same sets as the original King Kong. The premise of the film also served as the basis for such films as Hard Target and Surviving the Game and is prominently featured in Zodiac.

The following weapons were used in the film Most Dangerous Game, The:

Luger P08

A Luger handgun is used throughout the film by the villains to force Rainsford (Joel McCrea) and others to comply. At the climax of the film, Count Zaroff (Leslie Banks) retrieves the weapon from a desk drawer and tries to shoot Rainsford with it. Later, Rainsford uses the Luger to shoot one of Zaroff's men.

Trivia Section

  • The film bears many crossover elements with 1933's King Kong, which actually was shot concurrent to The Most Dangerous Game. In addition to the fact both films used the same jungle set, actors Robert Armstrong, Fay Wray and Noble Johnson (who appeared as the Skull Island native chief in Kong) appear in both films.
