Description

    Ernest B. Schoedsack Initialed Costume Memo for The Most Dangerous Game. The Most Dangerous Game (1932) is one of the great Hollywood melodramas of the early 1930s, co-produced and co-directed by Ernest B. Schoedsack and Merian C. Cooper before their legendary collaboration on King Kong (1933). The story tells the tale of mad General Zaroff, who hunts men for sport on his forsaken island. The 8.5" x 11" RKO Inter-Department Correspondence memo, dated March 26, 1932, comes from Schoedsack to the studio costume department, with the director's ideas for the attire of Zaroff (Leslie Banks), Rainsford (Joel McCrea), Ivan (Noble Johnson), and Miss Wainwright (Fay Wray). "E.B. Schoedsack" is typed at end of memo and Schoedsack has initialed "E.B.S." in green ink. Very minor border damage; otherwise, it is in Very Fine condition. An ultra-rare item commemorating a great film thriller and a dynamic movie-maker.
