Intro by author Victoria Riskin on March 23. Copies of her book "Fay Wray and Robert Riskin: A Hollywood Memoir" will be available for sale and signing

"There are two kinds of people in the world: those who hunt and those who are hunted." When his luxury yacht sinks off the western coast of South America, author and big game hunter Joel McCrea washes up on the private island of a mysterious, exiled Russian count (Leslie Banks) where he meets several fellow castaways, including siblings Robert Armstrong and Fay Wray. When it becomes clear that the Count's outward hospitality masks the most sinister of pastimes, McCrea must use his wits and skills to fight for his life, lest he and the others become the prey of a madman. Filmed on the same set as 1933's KING KONG and on an overlapping schedule, actress Wray worked as many as 22 hours in a single day, shuttling between the two productions. DIR Irving Pichel; DIR/PROD Ernest B. Schoedsack; SCR James Ashmore Creelman, from the story by Richard Connell; PROD David O. Selznick, Merian C. Cooper. U.S., 1932, b&w, 63 min. NOT RATED
