I am going to assume you mean the 1932 version of the movie The Most Dangerous Game. It is actually a pretty accurate remake of the short story written in 1924 in as much as the story's characters have similar names and the idea is the same- Rainsford is a hunter who becomes the hunted. The setting is pretty much the same as well. The major differences are that the movie version has the added element of the woman who becomes the prize maiden and part of the game when Rainsford takes her with him. The hunt takes place over the course of one night instead of three days and three nights like the story. Instead of being a General, Zaroff is a Count in the movie version as well. They did a fairly good job of casting people who resemble Connell's descriptions of the characters in the story, even Ivan seems to fit the role in the movie well.
