Blood-lusting hunters pursue a trio of scantily-clad strippers in the Oregon Wilderness. Part 1 of THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME, one of the Ubu Hour's most contriversal radio dramas. Based loosely on the Richard Connelly story and using actual sound bits and dialog from a couple of early productions of this story from the 1940s (including one with Orson Welles for the show SUSPENSE) this version is incredibly violent, lurid and profane. Cheney and Scalia join General Zaroff for the hunt. Do not listen to this if you are easily offended!
