First of all, in the novel Guy was not a tennis player, instead he was an architect. The plot in the novel was also completely different than the film. For instance, in the novel Guy actually went through with Bruno’s request by killing his father and ending up in jail. All while Bruno ended up dead from a boating accident. In Strangers on a Train, Hitchcock again uses a common theme we are used to seeing

In the movie “The Mighty” I noticed how Max and Kevin treat each other. How their friendship got started in the beginning of the movie was when Kevin came in as a tutor for Max because he struggled with reading. Both of the boys really didn’t have any friends, and they both stood out as different in their own ways. In the scene when Kevin was reading to Max, that’s when I noticed that their friendship was mutualistic because both of them were getting something out of it. After Kevin got done reading to Max, he asked him if he would take him to the fair to go see the fireworks and he would give him five dollars.
Theme is the life lesson that can be taught in many different mediums, such as short story, video, ballad and many other mediums. Recently we read the short story The Ransom of Redchief and watched the movie Home Alone. Although one is a short story and one is a full-length movie they have the same themes. An example of a theme that would fit both would be Things don’t always go how you planned. This would be a theme because in The Ransom of Redchief because the kidnappers planned to easily take the little boy and get ransom for him, but they ended up paying to get rid of him.

Despite wanting to act in his youth, Salinger despised movies after one of his short stories "Uncle Wiggily in Connecticut”, became a film, however they changed the name to My Foolish Heart and changed many characteristics of the short story.

The Rough Around the Edges Never Smoothed Zakary Meyer Keiser University The Rough Around the Edges Never Smoothed Edgar Allan Poe the one who is considered the writer of the dark, the murderous and death was born January 19th 1809 in Boston.

The film however had many added details which were not always necessary, but also left out many of the most interesting parts of the book which I found a shame. This is why I very much prefer the book to the movie. The first chapter of the book starts with a flashback described by Joe, the narrater, in which we get detailed descriptions of a man named John Logan’s death in a ballon accident, whilst trying to help an endangered young boy in the basket of the balloon. There is also a scene in the airport before the accident took place in which Joe and Clarissa meet after six weeks of their parting. This scene never appeared in the film but started with the picnic of Clarissa and Joe which is followed by the accident.
There are many differences made in the movie and the book to simplify the plot to save time. Majority of the simplifications being made do not affect the story, but have a different way of portraying each chapter. The movie and the book portray the messages in different ways with the same meaning. What happened in the beginning of the movie was that Huck was getting into a fight with a kid and he soon discovered Pap’s footprint, while in the beginning of the book Huck being civilized by Widow Douglas. In the movie, it went straight to the point where Huck was captured by Pap and they lived in a cabin while the book had a couple of chapters where Widow Douglas, Miss Watson, and Tom Sawyer were mentioned before Pap’s appearance.

Al, the friend of Jake, explains
By knowing the new movie by heart, the older film was painfully long and not played in the same order as the current Gatsby or book. The original film skipped around and extended parts not seen before to movie watchers. It focused on the suicide more than the killing of Myrtle. Another big part of the story line is Nick narrates the story through his journal as in he is writing this novel. Within both moves, Gatsby is portrayed the same.
