Acteurism: Joel McCrea in "The Most Dangerous Game"

13 April 2015 4:51 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The Most Dangerous Game. Courtesy of Rko Radio Pictures Inc./Photofest.Early in his career as a leading man, Joel McCrea was cast in two films about dangerous animals on the loose. Using the same jungle sets, the same directors (Irving Pichel and Ernest B. Schoedsack), and even the same stars (Fay Wray and Robert Armstrong) as their upcoming King Kong (1933), Rko’s production of The Most Dangerous Game (1932) submitted to economic shortcuts.

36 Things We Learned from John McTiernan’s Predator Commentary

Tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of director John McTiernan‘s release from jail after being convicted of lying to the FBI in a case involving wiretapping and a disgraced private investigator. He hasn’t made a film since 2003’s rough-to-watch Basic, but he has some great ones on his resume including Die Hard, The Hunt for Red October, The Thomas Crowne Affair and… 1987’s Predator. The film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a mercenary tasked with leading a team into the jungle on a mission only to be interrupted by an alien presence. It remains a ton of old-school action fun nearly three decades later, and while four sequels/spinoffs/reboots have come and gone the original is still the best remembered. McTiernan recorded a commentary track for a special edition DVD release several years ago, and we gave it a listen to celebrate the anniversary of his freedom from the hoosegow. Keep »
