How the Grinch Stole Christmas”, also known as “The Grinch”, is a 2000 family-based, Christmas-themed, comedy film delivered by Universal and Imagine Entertainment and based on the 1957 children’s picture book written by Dr. Seuss of the same name. Directed by Ron Howard (who also directed “Splash”, “Rush”, and “The Dilemma”), “The Grinch” was the first full-length feature film adapted from the series of outstanding and beloved Dr. Seuss tales. Since the film was the first to be based off one of Seuss’s famous children's books, many additions had to be made to the storyline to make the film fit the era’s “standards” by bringing it up to feature-length, leaving the young and older audience intrigued, and most importantly keeping the legacy of Dr. Seuss's works intact.

Many people have different opinions on life - some consider it a great gift meanwhile others consider it a suffering. George agreed with the latter option in the beginning of “The Greatest Gift” and It’s a Wonderful Life but learned throughout it that he was wrong and his life is worth living. Philip Van Doren Stern, the writer of the self-published short story: “The Greatest Gift”, went through a lot to get his piece published. He wrote a 4,100-word story - within the span of four years - and was then unable to find a publisher. Philip subsequently decided to send 200-twenty-one page booklets to his friends as a Christmas card, catching the attention of RKO Pictures producer David Hempstead.
Maria Ramirez Dr. Wiltse English 1301 25 November 2014 Cinderella Which is better, the book or the movie? That is the highly debated question that arose the minute the first motion film came to the public. For centuries, literary works and texts have been converted into movies and/or plays, leaving it up to the audience to decide which they prefer, the written text or the theatrical version of the said text. In the case of Cinderella, which was originally a short story composed by the well-known Brothers Grimm in 1812, and then later brought to life by the famous Walt Disney in 1950, the theatrical rendition wins by a landslide. In the original work, there is too much unnecessary cruel and unusual punishment, whereas in the Disney fairy tale, the story gives hope for a happily ever after.
