Matt and I picked up an interesting film the other day. We were at the library browsing the shelves, and we happened upon a movie called Man Hunt that takes place in the World War II era. We've been on a bit of a World War II kick this summer, including enjoying the spectacular miniseries Band of Brothers.
Man Hunt has several strong parallels to "The Most Dangerous Game". Both are about men who hunt a human quarry. In "The Most Dangerous Game," a big game hunter finds himself the target of another hunter. In Man Hunt, a hunter is found stalking Adolf Hitler and then finds himself tailed by Nazis attempting to exact a confession that the British government sent him as an assassin.
I don't want to ruin the end, but I will say that I highly recommend the movie. Afterward, we looked up the details -- the movie was made in 1942 when Hitler was still alive, and I could definitely see the film as a bit of propaganda. I'm fairly sure it's modeled after "The Most Dangerous Game," which was written in 1924. It seems like the similarities are just too much to be coincidental.
In any case, fun times in old movie watching and library browsing! I love the serendipity of exploration.
