The Most Dangerous Game in Video

The Most Dangerous Game written by Richard Connell is a popular short story taught in schools around the country. In fact, as I was supervising the lunch room today, I saw a student reading it for a literature class. Seeing that student reading the story is what gave me the impetus to look for videos of story. Below are two videos based on The Most Dangerous Game that I thought were fairly well done.





Applications for Education
After reading The Most Dangerous Game students can watch one of the videos and write a comparison between the video depiction and the original story. Students can also analyze why the film makers chose things to include or omit in their videos.
