It's been awhile since I've seen the 1930s movie version with Joel McCrea, but I think I like the story better by virtue of the lack of padding that was done to make it a feature film. The story itself is a lean and mean little tale of terror, with a simple moral of hunter becoming the hunted and a final sentence that caps it off brilliantly.

Stephen I'm glad you liked this, Karla.

Karla Thanks for prompting me to read it again!

Kerrie My library has it in the kiddie's fiction section - really???

Karla I don't think so! :P

Kerrie Must be a sanitized version. I placed a hold on it, so I'll find out in a few days.
