In 1964, two days after meeting his favorite author, Kilgore Trout, Billy and Valencia held a party for their eighteenth wedding anniversary. As the barbershop quartet sang “That Old Gang of Mine,” Billy became upset and extremely uncomfortable. As Vonnegut wrote, Billy’s odd behavior is later explained in 1968 while in the Tralfamadorian zoo when he tells Montana Wildhack about the day of the Dresden bombing. Dresden was destroyed on February 13, 1945. That day in which all the soldier seeking shelter came out, there were four guards who were overwhelmed with astonishment and grief (Vonnegut 179).
In A Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Scrooge, a cold- hearted man, continues his greedy ways on Christmas Eve. He declines a dinner invitation from his nephew, Fred; he yells at a Gentlemen Visitor; and is rude his employee, Bob Cratchit. At night, Scrooge's former partner Jacob Marley, who has been dead for seven years, visits him. Marley tries to warn Scrooge to not be as greedy as he once was. Later, the Spirit of Christmas Past, Spirit of Christmas Past, and Spirit of Christmas Present visit.
The movie was made in 1938 by Edwin L. Martin. This essay will discuss how Scrooge, Bob Cratchit and his family, and the ghosts are similar and different in the play and the movie.. In both the play and the movie of The Christmas Carol there are many similarities and differences in the character of Ebenezer Scrooge. One similarity is that Scrooge is very mean in both the play and the movie. For example, he forces Bob Cratchit to work very early on Christmas Day.
I awaited the Spirit’s support for Scrooge's new-found sense of selflessness, along with the Spirit being depicted comforting Scrooge when the Spirit tells Scrooge that Tiny Tim is destined to die. What contributed to my shock was the fact that the Spirit of the Present is conveyed as the most friendly of the three spirits Scrooge encounters throughout the book. This is because the Spirit of the Present is first presented to readers eating a jolly feast with plenty of guests, joyfully passing down food. Furthermore, the passage puzzled me because it shows Scrooge transforming from a selfish man to a caring old man. However, as Scrooge is already changing from the beginning of his journey with the Spirit of the Present, I wondered why does Scrooge need to visit a third ghost.
About Schmidt is an intricate character study of a 66 year old man, Warren Schmidt, who falls into the abyss of retirement and widowhood with denouement for temporality, stability and purpose of life and slowly regaining it back by getting in touch with his inner self. His salvation comes inadvertently, through a one-way series of letters he writes to a disadvantaged orphan in Tanzania. As the movie begins we see saddened Warren Schmidt, sitting in his office chair with files filled with his legacy of business acumen packed and boxed in background. After retirement as an actuary for the Woodman of the World Insurance Company, Schmidt is left with nothing but time on his empty hands. Another scene shows him suffering through a meaningless retirement dinner along with his wife.
