Run for the Sun

  • Film
  • Action and adventure
An adaptation, by Boulting and Dudley Nichols, of Richard Connell's much filmed short story The Most Dangerous Game. Widmark is a novelist and Greer a journalist who crash-land in the jungle, are given hospitality by three Europeans who may be Nazis, and escape pursued by a pack of dogs. The film never really gets to grips with the grotesquerie of the original story, though Howard, as a dead ringer for Lord Haw-Haw, is excellent. It was filmed in SuperScope 235, one of the widest film processes available.
