The Most Dangerous Game is a 1932 film adaptation of the 1924 short story of the same name by Richard Connell. The plot concerns a big game hunter on an island who chooses to hunt humans for sport.

The film stars Joel McCrea as Rainsford (now named "Robert" instead of "Sanger") and Leslie Banks as Count Zaroff, the hunter. It adds two other principal characters to the story: brother and sister Martin. The film was made by a team including Ernest B. Schoedsack, the co-director of King Kong (1933). It was shot mostly at night, using the same sets that were being used for the Skull Island sequences of King Kong. The film also starred Fay Wray and Robert Armstrong, who starred together in King Kong, as well.
