Notes from the movie • Old-school black-and-white in the beginning of the film with upbeat, then dreamy music. • Foreshadowing with scrolling, stormy thunderstorm clouds during opening credits. • Having seen most of the film numerous times before but never the ending(as I recall), it was easy to tell that Hunk must be the Scarecrow, Uncle Henry is the Lion, and Elmyra Gulch is the wicked witch of the east. Aunt Em must be the good witch of the North. • Dorothy seems rejected by her family in the beginning of the film, like they don’t have time or don’t want to talk to her.
For example: when Crockett first plays his violin to the crowd, the song is "Listen to the Mockingbird" (The Alamo, 2009), not composed until 1855, 19 years after the fall of the Alamo. Another one of these details was the part that shows Sam Houston paying for a drink with a coin carrying Santa Anna's portrait, which was not possible because Mexican silver coins of that era showed a liberty cap. Even though these details could have been used to make the film more interesting, they were still inaccurate. Although this movie had some inaccurate historical events, it had some that were precise, for example: the costumes that were used in the film were all correct. The uniforms worn by the Texans showed their order and ranks and the Texan settlers were dressed in mountain gear and other items that were commonly work by frontiersmen at the time.
In the pavilion, Gosney passed a note to Don Harris (mistaking him for Ryan), reading "Dear Congressman, Vernon Gosney and Monica Bagby. Please help us get out of Jonestown." (Hall) That night Ryan, Speier, Dwyer, and Annibourne stayed in Jonestown. Other members of the Ryan delegation, including the press corps and members of Concerned Relatives, were told that they had to find other accommodations, and so they went to Port Kaituma and stayed at a small café. In the early morning of November 18, eleven Temple members sensed danger enough to walk out of the colony toward train tracks to take a train to Matthew's Ridge, which is located in the opposite direction from the airstrip at Port Kaituma.
In recent years, several critics have called for a change in the ratings system that would make the ratings better reflect what is depicted in the film. One reason the ratings system should be changed is that the lines are blurred between some ratings. What kind of content gets a film an “R” rating, and what content deserves the dreaded “NC-17”? One article written by Andrew Essex for Entertainment Weekly magazine provides an example: in the movie Eyes Wide Shut, sixty five seconds of an orgy scene were digitally obscured, successfully bringing the film from an “NC-17” to an “R” rating (paragraph 1). Essex also discusses how Wild Wild West, a Will Smith film which begins with a decapitation, was given a “PG-13” rating (paragraph 7).
For example, when his wife was singing on stage or the closing scene when Kane is dead and they are deciding what to do with all of his possessions, the camera angle is at a crane shot looking down. This angle seems to depict the scene as almost powerless or at a time of struggle. Another example of the use of camera angles is at the beginning; the camera starts on the No Trespassing sign and cranes up at the house. Then, at the end Wells uses the same No Trespassing sign and cranes down to it. Wells also uses low angle shots of Kane throughout the movie to give him a sense of power.
Many scenes were omitted from the movie. The scene when Lennie is hiding in the brushes it does not show how he has memories of his Aunt Clara and the giant rabbit. A different scene which was omitted from the movie was when Candy curses the body of Curley’s wife. An added scene was in the beginning of the movies when it shows when George and Lennie were running from people on horses that were from Weed. The changes were made from the movie since the director from the movie did not want to make the book and the movie to much similar to each other.
In the movie, when he is visited by the ghost of Christmas Future, he runs away from the ghost and shrinks while running into a drain pipe. In both the book and play, this does not happen. In the play, Scrooge is a lot more flirtatious with the maid than in the book and movie. Another difference is that in the play and book, the date that he dies isn’t shown on his gravestone. In the movie, it shows the date of December twenty-fifth on his gravestone.
