Movie Quote(s):
  • Doc: I was thinking of the inconsistency of civilization. The beast of the jungle, killing just for his existence, is called savage. The man, killing just for sport, is called civilized. It's a bit inconsistent, isn't it? Bob Rainsford: Now just a minute. What makes you think it isn't just as much sport for the animal as it is for the man. Now take that fellow, for instance. There never was a time when he couldn't have gotten away, but he didn't want to. He got interested in hunting me. He didn't hate me for stalking him anymore than I hated him for trying to charge me. As a matter of fact, we admired each other. Doc: Perhaps, but would you change places with the tiger? Bob Rainsford: Well, not *now*.
  • Eve Trowbridge: Oh Martin, turn in early, please. Martin Trowbridge: Don't worry. The Count will take care of me. Count Zaroff: Indeed I shall.
  • [first lines] Captain: The channel's here on the chart, all right, and so are the marking lights. First mate: Then what's wrong with them? Captain: Those lights don't seem to be in just the right place. They're both a bit out of position according to this. First mate: Two light buoys means a safe channel between the world over! Captain: "Safe between the world over" doesn't go in these waters.
  • Bob Rainsford: This world's divided into two kinds of people: the hunter and the hunted. Luckily I'm the hunter. Nothing can change that.
Movie Trivia:
  • Jungle sets were also used for simultaneous filming of jungle scenes in King Kong (1933).
  • Some of the screams of the sailors as the ship sinks are the same as the screams of the sailors in King Kong (1933) when Kong shakes them off the log.
  • The original story by Richard Connell is one of the most anthologized short stories of all time.
  • The trophy room scenes were much longer in the preview version of 78 minutes: there were more heads in jars. But there was also an emaciated sailor, stuffed and mounted next to a tree where he was impaled by Zaroff's arrow, and another full-body figure stuffed, with the bodies of two of the hunting dogs mounted in a death grip. Preview audiences cringed and shuddered at the head in the bottle and the mounted heads, but when they saw the mounted figures and heard Zaroff's dialog describing in detail how each man had died, they began heading for the exit - so these shots disappeared.
  • During WWI, Leslie Banks suffered a disfiguring injury that paralyzed the left side of his face. Never once letting this injury interrupt his career, he went back to the stage after his release from service in 1918, and within six years was an international stage star. He was one of the most popular British actors on Broadway throughout most of the 1920s since his appearance in the 1924 production of "Peter Pan" as Captain Hook.
