In this essay I will be comparing the themes and the narrative techniques used in both films. Starting off with the film “Citizen Kane” as mentioned it is a story of a millionaire, Charles Foster Kane. It begins with Kane’s death and speaks a single word: “Rosebud”. The reporters in the hunt to know
Kane turned the Daily Inquirer Into a successful business and eventually hired the staff from the New York Chronicle. How Kane wanted to protect the ordinary people and turned this struggling business into a money maker shows the audience that Kane wanted to be loved and wanted power through journalism. Kane struggled throughout his life with two failed marriages that took a toll on him and changed his
This quote proves that the conflict in the film is that Will Kane sent Frank Miller, a dangerous outlaw, to prison up north for murder. Frank was pardoned, and he is coming back for revenge on Will Kane. An example of the conflict from the short story is, “‘But they are men,’ said Rainsford hotly. ‘Precisely,’ said the general. ‘That is why I use them (for my hunting game).
Frank was a normal person looking for love and affection as done anyone else. He found the wrong girl who was with the wrong guy. Frank was innocent in the situation but the jealousy of Richard Strout was to much for him to bare so he murdered Frank. The audience sees the reason behind Mr.Strouts murder and the reason behind Mr.Fowlers murder and deems one reason better than the other therefore one murder is okay and
(CHANGE) High Noon focuses on staying loyal, even when everyone tells you to leave. When Kane goes to Mart, and ex-lawman, for advice, he says, “It’s a rotten life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries let them go so they can come back and shoot you again. If you’re honest, you’re poor your whole life, and in the end you wind up dying all alone in a dirty street, or some stinky alley. For what?
Interpretation of this film will depend greatly on when the viewer is watching it and what they believe about the world; a modern watcher of High Noon might view it as a thinly-vailed reference to the French refusal to support the war in Iraq. Another viewer could also take it as a reference to the Iraq war, but view Kane as a satirical, tragic hero, fighting a battle he didn't need to fight for a group that didn't need to be defended. Yet another viewer could see an attempt to subvert traditional western tropes, and think nothing of what the allegorical intent was. None of these viewers are wrong. Any meaning to be taken from a piece of work is the sole product of the viewer, and ultimately has little to do with what the writer meant to
Although comparing and contrasting brings new depth to stories ' elements, the true adventures lurk deep within the core of the tales, such as in The Most Dangerous Game and High Noon. In the story, The Most Dangerous Game, written by Richard Connell, the main character must survive on an isolated island for three whole days while learning what it is like to endure nothing but fear, such as an animal being hunted. The movie, High Noon, written by Carl Foreman, is a Wild Western film swarming with guns, horses, and sweet, sweet revenge! Will Kane, the main character, is obligated to serve his town since he is the marshal, but when his enemy, Frank Miller, returns to town to kill him, Kane must face his death sentence alone.
Frank committed a large scale crime, and was sent to a higher security prison. When Frank arrived, he learned the Penitentiary was unforgiving and broke spirits. “His lips were colorless, his fine teeth looked yellowish. He glanced at Alexandra sullenly, blinked as if he had come from a dark place, and one eyebrow twitched continuously” (Cather 103) Frank was portrayed as the antagonist in the entire book, except readers will sympathize for Frank
In both stories the main character are both fighting alone. [Kanes signs his name to what he has written, folds it, then writes on it: "To be opened in the event of my death" (Foreman 326). This tells the watchers/ reader that Kane has no one to help him and fears that he will die. "Your brain against mine. Your woodcraft
High Noon and "The Most Dangerous Games" are great stories with very interesting plots. Kane and Rainsford are the main characters of these stories, and they are very different but alike at the same time. Both Kane and Rainsford fight alone against their opponent with no one their to help them. Kane was not always alone until he turned in his tin star and said goodbye to being a sheriff so he could be with his wife who was a Quaker.
Batman’s assumption of his duty to his community represents the American mindset of it duties to its own communities. This idea of putting community before anything is a worrying thought. Why does Batman do it? He does it to make sure order, justice, and understanding are number one in his community. Batman brings awareness to “Letter from Birmingham Jail” by Dr. Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. and Nathaniel Hawthorne’s , “Dr. Heidegger’s Experiment” American spirit of having a duty to communities.
Although High Noon and “The Most Dangerous Game” are very different from each other, they share their theme in common. In both of these, the characters go through isolation. In High Noon Kane is fighting Frank Miller alone, no one in the town volunteered to help. He had to go through the obstacle of fighting four people alone. When he went to find deputies
This episode does indeed center around the character of Pastor Frank, and quite honestly it is time for a bit of a confessio on my part. I have not been overly accepting of this character in Hope Valley, and ever since Mark joined last season, I wasn 't sure what I thought of his portrayal of this rugged and simple pastor. I was suspicious of Pastor Hogan, his intentions towards
Although Frank is just a child, his tone throughout the story is made so it shows that he recognizes the seriousness,” Mam visits me on Thursdays. I’d like to see my father, too, but I’m out of danger, crisis, time is over, and I’m allowed only one visitor.” (pg.344) He’s in uncomfortable situations with
Frank wanted a life where he could eat and sleep with comfort, “ My mother never makes soup like this and I wonder if there’s any chance Mrs. Leibowitz could ever be my mother… There’s plenty of salt and butter in the potatoes and I wonder if there’s any chance Minnie could be my mother so that I could eat like this all the time” (38-39). McCourt was disappointed with the life he had and the parents that cared for him. He often wished things were different for
