On April 24, 1967, S.E. Hinton published the book The Outsiders. Then sixteen years later director Francis Ford Coppola’s movie version of The Outsiders was released on March 23, 1983. The book is about a young boy named Ponyboy who lives with his two older brothers because his parents were killed in a automobile accident. Ponyboy goes through a lot of tough times because he is a part of this group known as the Greasers. The Greasers are a group that are known for being from the poor side of town and the Socs are the rich kids on the other side of town. Throughout the entire book the two groups kept fighting and then something terrible happened that changed Ponyboy’s life forever. The movie and book have many differences
I like the Outsiders in the form of a book better than in the form of a movie because, the movie wasn’t as descriptive as the written form was. The book form had was also much more thrilling, and interesting. The Movie was missing many key points that could have made it better.
The Outsiders is a book that has been read by many people. Most of the people have enjoyed the book, but not the movie or vise versa. The Outsiders was very good and had a great story behind it. The reasons why the book is better than the movie are the book gives more detail, people can let their imagination go wild, and the movie leaves out key elements that the book has.
The book and the movie of the Outsiders are two very different stories. The book has so much more detail then the movie. The movie is not the most detailed but it does get its point across. There are may similarities and also many differences between the two the book is by far more interesting and more detailed then the movie. I enjoyed the book a lot and the movies a lot but the movie was missing a lot.
A comparison between both mediums for The Outsiders can be made by showing both of their advantages and disadvantages to show that one of them is better than the other.
Did you know that S.E. Hinton’s first royalty check was only worth ten dollars? Although, The Outsiders did not get popular very quickly, it was eventually made into a major motion picture and is now a best-seller. The Outsiders the movie and book are both great works, but the book provided more detail and was just way better. Therefore, this paper will compare the similarities and discrepancies between the book and movie. Ultimately, the goal of this essay is to provide evidence that the movie was quite different than the book.
The “OUTSIDERS”, a book and movie, portrays a small gang going through hard times. The Book and Movie may have the same plot but have small yet noticeable differences. Both stories take place around Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1965. These should be compared to show why sometimes movies get things wrong and why the book tends to be better, in this case they both stick to the plot with only a few missing or added details, such as the book is slower paced but has more detail, the movie misses or adds small details, and the movie destroys your thought of what characters look like.
The “Outsiders” movie and novel are very different and similar. The book and the movie have some similarities. After really comparing the two there was a lot of differences.
The Outsiders is a book that was published in 1967 and the movie was released in 1983. The Outsiders has two main “groups” of people in the story, Outsiders and Socs. Socs are the rich kids with fancy mustangs and Greasers are the “hood” type that have each other's backs. In this adventure a kid named Ponyboy gets himself into a huge mess when his friend Johnny took things way too far by killing a Soc. I think that the book is better than the movie because the book gives better detail and descriptions, you can feel and understand emotion, and you can experience character growth.
The book and the film were both simular, and yet different in many ways. An example would be, in the film, Ponyboy was walking to the drive-in and meeting Cherri and Marcia. Although in the book, Ponyboy began his journey by telling the readers about his experience about being jumped by the Socs and being threatened. The director probably had some options to pick from to leave out from the movie, and the director chosed this to leave out. Leaving out the part where Ponyboy was jumped was an effective move because without the experience Ponyboy was lost and helpless because he did not know what to do when he and Johnny got cornered in the park by Bob and other Socs.
The drive-in and Bob’s death. Living in an abandoned church. The fire, hospital and the rumble. All are apart of the book and movie, The Outsiders. In it, a group of Greaser boys have a close bond. An unexpected night occurs and Johnny murders a Soc. Johnny and Pony run away and soon, along with Dally, they save children from a fire. Johnny’s doesn’t look good and he dies. Dally gets into some trouble and gets shot. There are many similarities and differences between the movie and book version of The Outsiders because of events in the movie, book, and both.
Majority of movies don’t follow along with the books as an example my class read “The Outsiders” was written by S.E. Hinton and the director for the movie was Francis Ford Coppola. “The Outsiders” was about seven friends that were greasers, three whom were siblings, a greaser is a person who has long greasy hair, live on south side of town, and they ain't rich kids, but one night something happened that changed everything . We ended up seeing the movie but some of the scenes were nothing alike the book. I mean to be totally honest there wasn’t a lot of errors just missing some important parts I wouldn’t say they added some scenes to it. Naturally they were young men acting like greasers, but they really acted really well as a family, that is what I think made the movie like a true family bond. I think how they acted like very close and like caring, it was really good because in the book and the movie they were all very close and they acted like a real family. This writing is about what the differences are in the movie from the book and what important parts I thought they missed and didn't put in the movie what kind of
The book is better because it has more events than the movie. Watching “The Outsiders” movie, I was a little disappointed when certain events from the book weren’t in the movie. Ponyboy and Cherry didn’t talk about the sunsets very much in the movie. In the book, they talk about how they admire just sitting and watching the sunsets. Another event that wasn’t in the movie is when Pony and Two-Bit see Johnny’s mother at the hospital. I think that event is really important because it shows a little of what Johnny has gone through at home. However, some may say that the movie is better because it has all of the major events. But, even the less important events are still significant in some way.
In El Dorado California, once called Mud Springs, lived two twin sisters Elisa and Elizabeth. These 11 year olds lived with their grandmother Myra whom took care of them since they were 4 years of age after their parents passed away in a tragic car accident. They lived humbly in a small log cabin. Elisa and Elizabeth’s favorite pass time was to play in the forest; they loved acting and playing as magicians attempting to do magic tricks.
The movie “the Outsiders” is very different from the book, written by S. E. Hinton. The very first scene in the movie shows Ponyboy writing in his journal the very first words in the book, “When I stepped out into the bright sunlight…” (The Outsiders). The book does not show or say in the beginning of the book that Pony was writing in his journal. Almost right after that scene it barely shows a slight argument/fight between greasers and socs. The book tells us that the fight was more serious and Ponyboy got hurt pretty bad, when in the movie all Pony gets is a little scar. After Johnny gets hurt when the old church catches on fire he ends up dying. Dally, another greaser that is part of the main group of friends, ends up shoplifting because he really cared about Johnny. Dally was eventually shot and killed by the police. The scene in the movie where Dally is in the store, thinking about shoplifting, is not in the book. “He’s just robbed a grocery store and the cops are after him.” (Hinton 153). The whole scene of Dally in the store is not in the book. Although there are many differences between the movie and the book, “the Outsiders”, there are also many similarities.
