Rainsford has to stay alive for three days in order to live, and he has to fight for his life during the hunt. In the end Rainsford is able to win, and by doing so gains knowledge that changes him.
High Noon, which was written by Carl Foreman, is a film about a marshal who has to protect his town and himself from a man who is returning from prison on the noon train for revenge with the help of his gang. “The Most Dangerous Game,” which was written by Richard Connell, is a short story about a man who ends up on an island known as ‘Ship Trap Island’ and has to survive from an expert hunter for three days by hiding from the hunter, his dogs, and his accomplice.

Enemy, is a source of perennial anxiety since the journey to city culture began in eighteenth¬ century Europe. With a suburban dunce or madman like Guy Fawkes hiding at the basement of a royal house, the occupants are facing great and imminent disaster.

For instance, the symbols of sunset and night, which reflect the two opposing forces of good and evil in the text. This is especially apparent when we consider that the light of late day allows him to see Faith with love whereas when he sees her in darkness, he is suspicious and afraid. The forest is a symbol for that which is dark and mysterious. The walking stick is another symbol in this story by Nathaniel Hawthorne that demonstrates how nothing is as it seems in the text. At one moment it is a withered and twisted stick while at another it changes into a slithering serpent.
In addition to that Theodore Roosevelt mentioned that “ Most of the men with whom I was intimately thrown during my life on the frontier and in the wilderness were good fellows, hard-working, brave, resolute, and truthful “ (pg 203).

In my opinion, not all the characters follows the rules of the game, in the short story " The Most Dangerous Game" . I believe the rules were broken by General Zarroff, before he brought out the dogs, he announced that he will only to be armed with a hunting knife and a small pistol, when that is not true since he brings the "dozen or so huge black...(dogs ) (72)". The story specifically states the rules of the games when the general addresses the rules to Rainsford. "I give him a supply of food and an excellent hunting knife...I give him three hours’ start....armed only with a pistol of the smallest caliber and range" (71-72). Which in my viewpoint, dogs were specifically used as a weapon.

The Necessity of the setting in “The Most Dangerous Game” The setting is so essential to the plot of Richard Connell 's short story, “The Most Dangerous Game.” For instance, the general has a false channel which makes sure he always has prey to hunt. General Zaroff presses a button and out in the caribbean lights appeared. “‘They indicate a channel, where there 's none; giant rocks with razor edges crouch like a sea monster with wide-open jaws”’ (8). All the ships crash into these rocks and that ensures that Zaroff always has prey to hunt. Another reason why the setting is so essential to the plot is, General Zaroff is on a deserted island this ensures his prey cannot escape.
There are two distinct reasons why the setting Richard Connell’s short story “The Most Dangerous Game” is essential to the plot. First of all, the thick jungle is important because it gives hunted people many places to hide from General Zaroff. Even with the general’s keen hunting skills, the maze of plants and trees gives excellent protection. When Rainsford approaches the island, he sees that, “An unbroken front of snarled and ragged jungle fringed the shore.” (3) The dense foliage is a tough challenge for anyone stranded on Ship-Trap island, and is sure to deteriorate anyone’s energy. Even the great hunter Rainsford’s.
The narrative of the film revolves around the young High Country stockman, Jim Craig, coming of age in which he must prove his worth when a valuable colt escapes the Harrison’s ranch and integrates with a mob of wild brumbies. Jim confronts the Victorian High Country to retrieve the colt and earn Harrison’s headstrong and feminist daughter, Jessica Harrison’s attention (Australian Screen Organisation (ASO), 2015). Jim Craig enhances the gender stereotype of the Australian man throughout the narrative, after being considered a ‘lad’ and a ‘mountain fella’ amongst the High and Low Country stockman, Jim, determined to be seen as a man, sets out to prove his worth through hard work and determination whilst living off the bare minimum. The Australian gender stereotype is prominent throughout the narrative with Jim being considered knowledgeable of the unforgiving terrain and possessing, “The mongrel quality of the mountain people”, which enables him to be a skilled tracker and stockman. Jim and the other stockman throughout the narrative display the stereotypical dry humour and concept of mateship, as they work off the arduous Australian land (Springfield College), with Spur a family friend of the Craig’s stating that “It’s a hard country, makes for hard men.” (The Man from Snowy River, 1982) Jim after impulsively charging down a steep valley to capture the escaped colt is reconsidered by the High and Low Country stockmen with their attitudes towards him expressing a newfound admiration saying, “He is not a lad…he’s a man.
