This is your Turner Classic Movie channel alert!
Tonight...The Most Dangerous Game (1932), 8pm est
"A big game hunter decides to stalk human prey."
I’ve got that recorded on my DVR. Ok movie but a tad on the corny side.
Corny? It was made 80 years ago and is among the first movies with sound.
Fun fact: it was filmed on the leftover jungle set from King Kong.
Yes, corny. That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it.
This is the movie which investigators believe that the San Francisco Bay Area’s ‘Zodiac’ serial killer made reference to in at least one encrypted message to the San Francisco Chronicle and SF Examiner back in the late 1960s/early ‘70s.
I don’t think it was corny, but by 1932 they had sound for a few years. I doubt many silent movies were even made then.
Awesome movie! On an off note, I recently watched Harry In Your Pocket. Classic movie PING!
Could be fun to watch. Actually, the first movie with sound is a short with Eddie Cantor from 1923. Internet Archive has it here: http://archive.org/details/eddie_cantor_1923
While the jokes are a bit corny, it’s neat to watch. I’m sure that your movie here could have the same said about it. Thanks for letting us know.
I think they were still going strong. For instance, City Lights, arguably one of the best silent films made is from 1931.
You would prefer SLAVE GIRLS FROM BEYOND INFINITY?
Same story in outer space.
I’m all in for anything that has “slave girls” in the title! LOL!
Thanks for the ping! Sorry I missed it. Just got home...
It’s a fun movie.
After I read your comment, I looked up the Zodiak killer on Wikipedia. I had forgotten that 'Dirty Harry' was loosely based on the Zodiak Killer.
