Trivia

This is a remake of RKO'S 1932 hit The Most Dangerous Game. While the earlier version was filmed entirely on the studio backlot (utilizing sets that later appeared in the original 1933 version of King Kong) this version was shot mostly on location. And while the villain in the 1932 film was simply a madman, it is implied that Trevor Howard's character here is a former Nazi. See more »

Great Film to View
24 September 2006 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Viewed most of the films that Richard Widmark starred in, however, I finally discovered this film being shown on TV in the wee hours of the morning and found this to be a great film Classic. Richard Widmark, (Mike Latimer) and Jane Greer gave an outstanding performance together, sometimes fighting like cats and dogs and struggling to get away from Trevor Howard, (Browne) who plays a very wicked character who will stop at nothing to get just what he desires in life. This entire cast of actors all gave an outstanding performance, but Widmark and Greer really put their heart and soul into this picture. Jane Greer experience a spinal injury during the making of this film, and years later she became very ill and needed surgery, which corrected her problem. It was during a scene in this picture where Jane goes through swampy water which contains many dangerous viruses.
