The most significant change from the book to the film was that in the book Dally was shot and died before he hit the ground while in the movie he looks up at Pony still alive and says his name, and this is significant because it adds more emotion to the scene causing Pony to be more upset with what all has happened. In the book, Johnny had just did and since Dally was like a big brother to johnny, he couldn't take it. He ran out of the hospital without a word. Later on he calls Darry from a payphone explaining that he was running from the cops for attempted robbery of a grocery store and was heading for the park. When he was after a while, the cops shot him under a street light and was dead before he hit the ground.
In this paper I am going to be explaining why I think that Marcus’s search for courage, trust, and survival are the most important to this book. In the book Marcus really has to dig deep to find his inner courage. Ever since joining the SEALs he has had the feeling of invincibility.

From the beginning of the film, body bags are loaded up in the airplane to bring them back home to their families to mourn, while at the end bodies aren
It was strange to see such a beautiful country demolished by something as evil as war. If I could unsee one thing from the war, it would probably be trench warfare, and I’ve seen men literally explode while flying. The landscape is so barren in between the two trenches; it’s no wonder why it 's referred to as “no man’s land.” Men wait for the cue from their Lieutenant to storm from the trench, and the only outcome is bodies scattered and shrapnel littered across the battlefield. During one of the aforementioned flights (they blur together after awhile), Beagle’s plane was hit and he spiraled downward into “no man’s land.” I watched as Rawlings stupidly goes after him. Not able to see much, I flew off, but from what Rawlings told me, trench warfare is ruthless; a French came to help lift the plane wing off of Beagle’s hand and he was instantly shot.

Three time Olympic World champion in track and field, Gail Devers once said, “Sometimes we fall, sometimes we stumble, but we can’t stay down. We can’t allow life to beat us down.
