Transcript of The book and the movie are very different

A Scene of Similarities
A Shoulder of Love
A major difference is that the scene in the book where Miss Maudie's house burnt down. This whole scene was left out from the movie. In this scene Boo Radley puts a blanket around Scout's shoulders when she was not looking. This scene was one of the first scenes where Scout learns that Boo, Arthur is not mean like she thought. This shows that Arthur is nice to others and that he treats others like this because he wants to be treated fairly. Everyone judges him and makes assumptions about him. But all he wants is to help others. So that in return people will see who he really is. Leaving this our of the movie takes away the realization that Boo is not the monster everyone thinks he is. This difference was huge and it took away or understanding of who Boo really was.
Climb inside of his skin
When Scout was having a rough first day of school he was comforting her. Scout was upset and angry at her teacher for not understanding the students in her class. Atticus told her "You never really understand a person untl you consider things from his point of view.....until you climb into his skin and walk around in it." (33). This whole scene is in the book. This is a really important similarity because the meaning behind it supports the meaning in the book. It is saying that you have to look from the other persons point of view and understand how they feel. You have to apply the golden rule. You have to look from their point of view and understand how they feel. Then think about how you would feel if it was you in that situation. Having this in the book and the movie was very important. It contributes to the meaning of the book. It showcases the meaning of the book in the movie.
Atticus takes a stand for
The book and the movie are very different
but have some similarities

To Kill a Mockingbird
It makes sense
Atticus cross examining Mayella
This whole scene is exactly the same in the movie and the book. This scene is the part that brings the whole book and movie together. It brings the whole messages together. It is the huge step for the African Americans. This scene tells the truth about the people. It lets everyone know that Tom Robinson is innocent and that Bob Ewell is really the one who did it. Bob is actually a scum bag who beat up Mayella. Even though they still vote Tom guilty everyone knows who actually did it. This scene is key to the novel. It is what the whole book leads up to. It is when you learn how bad everyone really is. Without this scene the whole movie would not make sense. This scene had to be exactly the same to relay the same message the book does.
Attack of Bob Ewell
Bob Ewell in both the movie and book attack Jem and Scout. Bob could not get to Atticus so he decided to go after his kids. When Jem and Scout were walking home from the Halloween pageant Bob came out and attacked them. The scene in the movie seemed like the description in the book had come to life. It was thrilling and put you on the edge of your seat just like the book did. The lighting in the movie matched the drama in the book. It really resembled exactly what I pictured when reading that scene in the book. Including this scene in the movie was a must because it also was when Arthur came out and saved them. It was when if you had not all ready realized that Arthur was a good man. Scout finally got to see the real Boo, Arthur.
Boo The "Monster"
In the beginning of both the movie and book Jem describes Boo to Dill. Jem describes Boo exactly the same in both. He describes him as a monster. As some vicious man who was locked up because he is dangerous. Mrs. Stephanie also describes him as a maniac killer. No one really know who Boo is but they judge him based on rumors. Everyone is mean to him yet he does nothing them. This scene is important to have kept in the movie because it shows how the people in Maycomb do not follow the golden rule by not treating Boo with respect. It shows that no one really knows what Boo is like yet they make these assumptions.
One shot Finch
In the book "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee, Scout wants to meet and see Arthur Radley. He never comes out of his house though because he dad keeps him hidden inside. Then when Scout and Jem were being attacked he came out of his house and saved them. In the end Scout met Arthur when walking him home after he had saved her and Jem.
This book is all about integrity, taking a stand, and the golden rule. Each scene in the book shows one of those qualities. In the movie many of those scenes are lost. Losing each of those scenes takes away from the meaning of the book. It looses the messages of integrity and the golden rule.
However, the movie and the book are similar in many ways too. There are a few scenes in the book that remain the same in the movie. Each scene still holds the message of taking a stand.
The movie and the book have both major differences and similarities.
Boo Radley is the man Scout and Jem believes is a monster. But soon as the book progresses the kids realize he is not the monster everyone believes he was. The kids all called him Boo. But his real name is Arthur Radley.
Boo is not as big of character in the movie as he is in the book. Yet he is one of the main symbolism for a mockingbird in the book. He is in a lot of the important scenes in the book that show integrity and the golden rule. But in the movie he did not seem like as much of
a main character.
This scene in the book and in the movie are almost identical. Even if it was not exactly the same in the movie it still would have been important to include it. This is a huge scene to include. In this scene Atticus took a stand for Tom. A group of white men came to barge in and kill Tom at the jail. But Attius stood before the jail cell and would not let them in. He stood up for Tom and protected him. Taking a stand for others and what you believe in is one of the huge messages in this book. This scene is one of the biggest ones that displays this message. Not only does Atticus take a stand but so does Mr. Cunningham. Scout had followed Atticus when he left in the middle of the night. She was watching him from behind a bush but got scared for Atticus and ran to him. She was able to talk really sweetly to Mr. Cunningham and change the subject. She talked about how kind he was and that everything with his entailment would work out. Mr. Cunningham felt ashamed of what he was doing and got all of the men to leave. This scene shows several people taking a stand.
The Loss of the Golden Rule
In the book Mrs.Dubose is mean to Jem and Acout every time they walk by her house. One day Jem could not take it anymore and released his anger. He cut up all of her yard and plants. He then had to read to her for over a month to repay for what she did. Reading to her gave Jem insight to what her life was like. He realized that she was dieing and struggling each day. He learned to cope and get along with her. Mrs.Dubose also learned to get along with him and Scout. They started treating each other how they would want to be treated. They left this scene out of the movie. Loosing this scene looses the golden rule. This was a huge part of Jem and Scout learning the golden rule and they left it out in the movie. This scene had a huge significance on Scout and Jem's understanding of the golden rule.
In the book when Atticus shoots the rabid dog his secret comes out. The kids learn about how he is the deadest shot in Maycomb and that they called him One Shot Finch. Scout was thrilled about Atticus' secret talent that she wanted to tell everyone. But Jem tells her not too. Jem is proud of Atticus not because he has a talent but because he is a gentlemen. This is a very important scene. This scene shows Scout's realization about people. She realizes that Atticus is special in his own way. That you do not need a talent to be special. Leaving this scene out once again looses the meaning from the book. It looses the fact that Scout learns about the golden rule again. She learns to not tell people because Atticus would not want everyone to know. Scout learns a big lesson about people and the golden rule. Without this scene the book looses some of its message.
I believe the director's choices of which scenes to cut out made sense in the end. They may have cut out a few scenes that display the moral principles of the book but they did it so they had plenty of time to spend on the most important scene. All though many of the scenes they left out were key to the message, really the most important scene was the jail scene. In the end that was the scene that had to be the most accurate to be similar to the book. That scene holds the whole message of the book. Everything else in the book has to do with that one scene. That scene is the book.
