Jared Prokop 11/3/11 Period 3 The Birds Similarities and Differences Though the story and film of the birds differ greatly, there is also much that they have in common. Alfred Hitchcock turned a short story into a full length feature film, so he had to make it a little more interesting by changing the setting, adding characters and many other ways. But Hitchcock stayed true to the very significant elements of the story, like they both take place in small fishing towns and also many means of attack that the birds used like coming down the chimney and kamikaze. They are both so similar and yet so different. Some significant similarities in the film and story are that the book and movie take place in small fishing towns.
ENGLISH ESSAY INTRODUCTION The novel “A Cage of Butterflies” by Brian Caswell and the movie Edward Scissorhands by Tim Burton encompass the same theme of being an “outsider”. The novel and the film both use distinctive techniques which evoke an empathetic response. The novel itself is a convoluted yet understandable story of the five telepathical babies, seven high talented adolescents, two sympathetic staff and two ruthless scientists. The movie, also which strongly emphasis the theme of being different, is about an inventor who invented a man, Edward, but died before he finished Edward’s hands, so Edward is left with “Scissorhands”. PARAGRAPH 1 – FILM In the movie, Edward Scissorhands, the symbolic code of colour and technical code of camera angles are not yet only used to support the dominant discourse, but also to make a clear aspect of Edward’s difference to the society.
Hence, the movie provides a different picture for the viewer than Steinbeck gives for the reader. In the last instance, which possibly shows the greatest contradiction between the two, is the ending. The novel illustrates the ranch workers coming and finding that George had just killed Lennie. Slim tries to comfort George while they move away from the scene as Carlton says "Now what do ya "spose is eatn" them two?" In sharp contrast to this, the movie ends with George on a train once again, possibly to make it a traditional denouement, and visualizing him working on the ranch with Lennie walking off into the sunset.
Instead of just being at home after the visiting Johnny in the hospital like in the movie. Pony boy had to get a ride from this guy who saw he was bleeding and got him home. The setting was another thing that had some differences between the movie and the book. When they’re on Jay Mountain the book describes the land around Jay Mountain and the sky really well. But in the movie they just show a picture of them standing there with an orange sky and a very little bit of dirt was shown reciting the poem.

The main criteria for a western is for the story to take place in the American West. A western is set in the American west during the old west period, most commonly portrayed as the late 1800s.

A double row of weather-beaten, false-fronted buildings, most of which had never been painted, and a few scattered dwellings, some of logs, most of stone.”(L’Amour p.168).
