Joel McCrea Double Feature: Bird of Paradise (1932), The Most Dangerous Game (1932) DVD5
In Bird of Paradise, McCrea plays Johnny, a happy-go-lucky guy out yachting with his friends in the South Seas. When they encounter an exotic isle and its occupants, Johnny falls hard for a beautiful woman (Dolores del Rio) who saves him from drowning. Little does Johnny know that the lovely Luana is the daughter of the tribe's chieftain, and thus taboo. But Luana defies her own father out of love for Johnny, and the two try to find happiness together away from the tribe and from Johnny's friends. But Luana has a date with destiny, for if the local volcano should become irritable, she knows she must offer herself to it as a placating sacrifice.

The Most Dangerous Game pairs McCrea with lovely Fay Wray, who had just finished working on King Kong. Based on the famous short story by Richard Connell, the film relates the story of Bob Rainsford (McCrea), a young big-game hunter whose boat founders near a mysterious island. The only survivor of the shipwreck, Rainsford makes his way onto the island and discovers the stronghold of Count Zaroff (Leslie Banks), a wealthy eccentric and a big-game hunter even more passionate than Rainsford himself. Rainsford also meets beautiful Eve Trowbridge (Wray), another shipwreck victim, who tries to warn him that the count is involved in the disappearance of her friends. But it's not until Eve's brother Martin vanishes that she and Rainsford discover the count's real passion. Although in the past he hunted animals like tigers and elephants, now he likes to hunt the most dangerous game of all: man. And should Rainsford choose not to join him, he will soon become Zaroff's prey.
