Run for the Sun

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

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.
