Most Dangerous Game

Because of its theme and suspense, Richard Connell's story, "The Most Dangerous Game," is one of the most famous English language stories. Even if you don't know the original you know the many knock-offs that came from the idea of the hunter being hunted. It was made as a motion picture in 1932, starring Fay Wray and Joel McCrea, and filmed on the same set as KING KONG.

This printing of the 1924 story is from THE GOLDEN BOOK, October 1930.

I stumbled upon Golden Book as a result of collecting various illustrated versions of Haggard's She (GB reprinted it at about the time that the 1935 movie version was released).

I was quite impressed with what I found in it, and have managed to acquire copies of most issues.
