The Most Dangerous Game and High Noon are stories that have many similarities and differences, so conflict, theme, and setting are all things that compare and contrast with one other. Even though The Most Dangerous Game and High Noon are two stories that are very different, their conflicts are very similar. “If he does not wish to hunt, I turn him over to Ivan” (Connell 14). This citation from The Most Dangerous Game is said by General Zaroff to Rainsford as he explains the games rules to him.
The conflict in “The Most Dangerous Game” and High Noon are very similar. Both Kane, who is the main character of the film, and Rainsford, who is the main character of the short story, face the troubles of knowing whether or not they should kill the person that has done many wrong to many people including themselves. Kane deserved to have people from his town to help so that he didn’t have to run and be scared, but no one would come forward

High Noon and The Most Dangerous Game Compare and Contrast Essay Two excellent stories of hardship can be very different yet the same. The most Dangerous Game and High Noon demonstrate this very well. In the film High Noon made by Carl Foreman the main character is tested by time and fear, this nail bitting film accurately represents a man's trouble trying to defend his town. The short story The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell demonstrates how a persons belief can change from true fear, how the hunter can become the hunter, and the journey of a man trying to save himself from almost certain death. Both these stories are mainly focused around men and guns however they have underlying meanings behind them the make them interesting.
Huck and Jim both decide to flee from terrible situation and they run into one another at Jackson’s Island. At first Jim is freaked out by Huck because he believes that Huck had been killed and has come back to haunt him. Soon he realizes that Huck is real and reveals his secret, after convincing Huck to promise not to tell, about him running away. Huck is shocked to hear the truth and knows that “people would call [him] a low down Abolitionist and despise [him] for keeping mum—but that don’t make no difference” (37) because he promised to keep his word. Huck believes, and rightfully so, that he will be hated if he keeps quiet, showing the hold racism has over Huck.
To others, it is natural for him to do the deed because of his talent, however, it is very difficult for Atticus to shoot the dog because of his hatred of both guns and his natural talent because it gives “...him an unfair advantage over most living things” so he “...he decided he wouldn’t shoot until he had to” (130). For him to be able to finish the job means that he set aside his very strong sense of morals and his goal to teach his children morals in order to protect his town. Since the dog represents the racism of Maycomb, Atticus both symbolically rose up against racism by killing the dog and literally by defending a black man. When the rabid dog came to Maycomb, everyone in the town cowardly ran into the safety of their house and locked everything up, except for Atticus. No one stands up to the evilness of racism even if they do not agree with it, such as Mrs. Maudie, who had clear opposition to racism.
In literature class, we read the short story “The Most Dangerous Game”, by Richard Connell. The theme of the story, life or death, could be compared to the famous movie, The Hunger Games. The Hunger Games is a futuristic movie, where one boy and one girl from every district is taken to an arena to fight for the chance to be the last standing and to live. It is very similar to the fact that “The Most Dangerous Game” is about survival and fighting to live. One could say the movie and short story do not compare because The Hunger Games is also considered a romance, while “The Most Dangerous Games” is strictly about life and death.
The main characters of both stories both show that they are courageous. Even thought they might have some fear, they both are determined to fight for there lives. The conflicts in both stories are very similar because both characters have to fight alone against a group. Both antagonists have an advantage over the protagonists. The theme that High Noon shows is responsibility to society.
On the other hand, Antigone only stands up to her uncle, the king, because she wants to bury and pay her respects to her dead brother, who rebelled against the city. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and “Antigone” share a common theme of refusing to conform to society; however, Huck denies all of society, while Antigone only betrays the king. One similarity between the two characters is they both do what they believe is right, no matter the consequences or repercussions. Huck runs away from the widow and his father, and basically rejects all of society because he wants his freedom. In these actions, Huck demonstrates that he will follow his heart, even though his actions could result in danger and chaos.
Secondly, General Zaroff evokes a level of terror never experienced before by the victim. When Rainsford first meets General Zaroff, he thinks of him as an affable man but really the General has been waiting to hunt Rainsford ever since he entered the house. As the General and Rainsford are talking about hunting General Zaroff reveals that hunting animals does not interest him anymore. The general said “We will have some capital hunting, you and I” (Connell 6). This statement makes Rainsford nervous because the General says he does not hunt animals anymore but he still hunts a very dangerous game.
