About this product
- DescriptionPeople hunting people for sport-it's an idea both shocking and fascinating. In 1924 Richard Connell published a short story that introduced this concept to the public zeitgeist, where it has remained embedded ever since-as evidenced by the many big and small screen adaptations and inspirations. Since its publication, Connell's award-winning <em>The Most Dangerous Game</em> has been continuously anthologised and studied in classrooms throughout America. Raising questions about the nature of violence and cruelty, and the ethics of hunting for sport, the thrilling story spawned a new cinematic subgenre, beginning with RKO's 1932 production of <em>The Most Dangerous Game</em>, and continuing right up into the new millennium with 2004's <em>The Eliminator</em>. <em>The Most Dangerous Cinema</em> examines in-depth all the cinematic adaptations of the iconic short story, with each film chapter containing the following subsections: Sypsis, How 'Dangerous' Is It?, Analysis, Production History, and Credits. Photos, a bibliography, and four appendices ( Almost Dangerous Games, Dangerous Game Shows and Deadly Diversions, Dangerous Alien Games, and Television Adaptations and Inspirations ) are included.
