Watching every Criterion film is The Most Dangerous Game.

This week's episode finds Lost in Criterion once again joined by Stephen Goldmeier of Enchantment Under the Sea as we talk about Irving Pichel and Ernest B. Schoedsack's 1932 adaptation of Richard Connell's short story The Most Dangerous Game. The Blood for Dracula to King Kong's Flesh for Frankenstein, The Most Dangerous Game was shot after King Kong wrapped each day using the same cast, crew, and locations to significantly less impressive results.

Well, they can't all be winners.

Maybe if there were more Marcel Delgado and Willis O'Brien models and less needless compression of the time frame of the source material to the point where things just don't escalate naturally?
