Their settings might be the most different with these stories, one is an old West town and the other is a island full of trees.

When talking about the genre of action and adventure High Noon and “The Most Dangerous Game” are at the top of mine and many other people’s list of favorite short stories. High Noon is a story based on a chaotic day in the life of Will Kane, that involves many similar plots, settings, and patterns to “The Most Dangerous Game” where the main character Sanger Rainsford is also fighting for his life. Many may read both publishings and find no similarities, but when you start to take the stories apart the similarities are breathtaking. One of the most important similarities between the short stories, High Noon and “The Most Dangerous Game”, are that of the plot. Both tales portray a very clear plot of the hunter becoming hunted.
They say we tell the same several stories over and over again, the damsel in distress, the story of loss, the same few morals we need to be taught over and over again. “The Most Dangerous Game”, and High Noon are no different. They are a great example of how we retell and rearrange stories to fit the audience. Both stories feature the theme of hunter versus hunted, yet both stories present it differently. Throughout the story you can notice similarities in characters, plot, and even another prominent theme of isolation.
Another smaller difference is that the hunt is only one day. One of the biggest differences of the story and the movie is that the ‘final battle’ is shown in great detail in the movie. It shows how Rainsford kills Zaroff and his servants in a detailed battle, unlike the book that just infers that rainsford won. One of the greatest similarities was that Zaroff explained his ‘new animal’. In the movie he doesn’t explain it in detail but in the book he explains it to Rainsford and they have a discussion about it.
