In this story and short film, there are a lot of similarities and differences between the two. In The Ransom of Red Chief movie, Bill and Sam kidnapped Red Chief and put him in a box, yet in the story, they tied him up. Another difference is that Red Chief’s name, in the movie, is Andrew. In the story Red Chief’s actual name is Johnny. In the movie, Red Chief runs away but, in the story, Red Chief didn’t leave the cave. Red Chief decided to take Sam and Bill’s car out for a joy ride in the movie. There are a lot of other differences but, there are some similarities too!
The story and the movie have similar events in many ways like when the kidnappers in both stories get hurt and scared of the little boy. In the movie there are 2 antagonist and 1 protagonist the same as Ransom of Red Chief. In the movie and the story the kids are scared at first until they find out that they can take advantage of the criminals and mess with them. Kevin messes with Marv by playing the old movie sene and scaring him into thinking that there were other robbers on “their street”. Then later in the movie he gets Harry with the hot doorknob. The same thing happened in Ransom of Red Chief when the kid scares Bill when Sam isn't at the cave and then the little kid tells sam he was going to briol him by dawn and Sam is scared that he can't go to bed. The evidence to support the similarities in The Ransom of Red Chief is on page 65 “You was to be burned at sunrise, and you thought he’d do it.” This shows how Sam got scared after Red Chief tries to scalp bill and that is similar to the way marv was scared of kevin then Harry. Another similarity is at the end the story changes and the criminals pay for it instead of them getting what they want. In Ransom of Red Chief Bill and Sam pay the dad the $250 to give the kid back instead of them getting the ransom of $1500. Evidence to support my answer is found on page 75 “Right at that moment, I should have been taking the fifteen hundred dollars from the box under the
The first difference that caught my eye was how there was no cat, in the book there was a cat named, Sammie, and Sammie always got stuck in one of Billy’s traps. But in the movie
Foremost, it is very recognizable that the overall flow of the story is same, but most of the plot events are not the same. Though, there were same events happening in both novel and the movie. For example, in both
When a book is taken in by a movie company to be turned into a movie, some things are going to change or get cut out so that it meets certain requirements. The novel To Kill a Mockingbird written by Harper Lee is certainly not an exception. When Universal Productions chose to make the popular novel into a movie, the director and screenwriters had to make some important choices as to what they kept in and what they didn’t. There are many differences when you compare the two versions of To Kill a Mockingbird, but some that stood out are; the narrator of the movie is an Adult Scout looking back, the school appeared to be nicer in the movie, Aunt Alexandra isn’t mentioned in the movie at all, Scout isn’t shown when she is in class and there is more than one focus character. No movie is exactly like the book whether it be because of budget or time limit, and sometimes it can change the entire tone of the film.
Some things are different in the book and movie. Like Sunset Towers and Money in both versions. Sunset towers is luxurious in the book but a bad place to live downtown. The money the will was worth 200 million but in the movie it is worth 20 million. Another difference is that the Wexlers moved to Sunset Towers because they had no money, but in the book they moved because they had money. In the movie Jake Wexler is paying off his debt though they have money in the book. Jake Wexler is a
Comparing the book to the movie you can clearly tell what certain things are different. For example, Sydelle Pulaski worked for Mr. Westing in the movie but only talked over the intercom. This not only caused a lot of drama but more depth to the plot. Also, Crow didn’t go to jail but they did talk about most of the consequences of her going to jail. This made a little bit more serious and emotional instead of just letting it go.
The book and movie are completely different. It 's like comparing apples and oranges. (I 'm assuming that you used the newest version with Guy Pierce). The biggest difference is probably the ommision of Haydee and Maximillien and Valentine (three of the main character) and the addition of Jacapo. Jacapo does is in the book, but he is never a large character.
A minor difference between the movie and the book was concerning the scene about Sir Henry going to the moor. In the book he was pretty upset that people were trying to keep him from going there, but in the movie he showed the least bit of emotion. This was not a major impact on the story but it definitely added character to Sir Henry. In the movie Sir Henry was somewhat timid and in the book that scene showed he was not afraid to stand up for himself.
Books and movies are never exactly the same. Movies tend to leave out events that took place in the novel and may do things not according to the novel. To Kill A Mockingbird has a few difference and similarities between the novel and film. One of the differences, for example, is that in the movie Dill is Miss Stephanie Crawford’s nephew, but in the book Dill is actually Mrs. Rachel’s nephew. A similarity that both share is when Atticus kills the mad dog that is disturbing the neighborhood. These are only two examples of the many similarities and differences among the novel and film.
The novel and the movie share many similarities.The book and the novel share the same problems. A example johnny and pony run away since johnny killed bob.In both johnny gets injured badly and dies.
The short story “Ransom of red Chief” and the movie Home Alone share the theme “Don’t underestimate your opponent”. In the short story “Ransom of Red Chief” the text states “ One more night of this kid will send me to a bed in the madhouse”. This shows that they thought it would be easy to keep him in the cave but Red Chief drove them crazy. In the movie Home Alone the criminals think that since Kevin is home alone it will be easy to rob the house,but instead he sets traps to stop them and takes them by surprise. This highlights that they underestimated Kevin and they got hurt for it.
Normally, when a movie is made about a story in a book the two stories are not exactly the same. The movie is adjusted by adding small details or leaving out some parts in order to make the story more
Despite having many differences the film remains faithful in capturing the novel and putting on film. While one may not get everything from the movie as from the book, the majority of it is there. So for die hard fans of the book there is no need for disappointment. All the main parts of the book are there, the characters, the plot, the setting
