Transcript of comparing and contrasting the book and movie

Comparing and contrasting the book and movie version of
The Outsiders

Dustin Huffer (Can not underline anything)
Ponyboy backs into a wall in the movie.
The scene from the book and the movie are different.
Here is the paragraph that proves this.
I finally thought of some thing to say. "No."
I was backing up, away from that knife.
Of course I backed right into one of
them. They had me down in a
In the movie the Socs mustang doesn't honk as it pulls in, and in both the book and the movie Johnny kills Bob.
The paragraphs
from the book.

I started to say something about the film of ice developing on the fountain when a sudden blast from a car horn made us both jump.
He was sitting next to me, one elbow on his knee, and staring straight ahead. He was a strange greenish-white, and his eyes were huger than I'd ever seen them. "I killed him," he said slowly. "I killed that boy."
The scene from both the
movie and the book are the
The church burns down in this scene and Johnny gets hurt.
The scene from the movie and the book are the same.
This is the rumble scene.
The scene where Dally dies is similar, but not the same as the book.
This is the paragraphs that prove this.
Here is the paragraphs that prove this.
The difference is that Dally tries to crawl to the gang before dying.
The cinders and embers began falling on us, stinging and smarting like ants. Suddenly, in the red glow and haze, I remembered wondering what it was like in a burning ember, and I thought: Now I know. It's red hell. Why aren't I scared?
There are five or six paragraphs, so I chose the most important and shortened them some.
I leaped out the window and heard timber crashing and the flames roaring right behind me. I staggered, almost falling, coughing and sobbing for breath. Then I heard Johnny scream, and as I
turned to go back for him, Dally swore at me
and clubbed me across the back as
hard as he could, and I went down
into a peaceful darkness.

There are five or six paragraphs, so I chose the most important and shortened them some.
They were slugging it out, but Dallas was getting the worst of it, so I jumped in his Soc's
back, pulling his hair and pounding him. He reached back and caught me by the neck and threw me over his head to the ground.
Somebody kicked me hard in the ribs and i yelped in spite of myself. Some Soc had knocked out one of our bunch and was kicking me as hard as he could. But I had both arms wrapped around the other Soc's neck and refused to let go. Dally was slugging him, and I hung on desperately, although that other Soc was kicking me and you'd better believe it hurt. Finally he kicked me in the head so hard it stunned me, and I lay limp, trying to clear my mind and keep from blacking out. I could hear the racket, but only dimly through the buzzing in my ears.
Numerous bruises along my back and on my face were
throbbing, but I felt detached from the pain, as if it wasn't
really me feeling it. "They're running!" I heard a voice
yell joyfully. "Look at the dirty ------- run."

The scene is different in the book. Here is the paragraph.
We reached the vacant lot just as Dally came in, running as hard as he could, from the opposite direction. The wail of a siren grew louder and then a police car pulled up across the street from the lot. Doors slammed as the policeman leaped out. Dally had reached the circle of light under the street lamp, and skidding to a halt he turned and jerked out a black object from his waistband. I remembered his voice: It ain't loaded, but it sure does help a bluff.
Dally raised the gun, and I thought: You blasted fool. They don't know you're only bluffing. And even as the policeman's gun spit fire into the night I knew that was what Dally had wanted. He was jerked half around by the impact of the bullets, then slowly crumpled with a look of grim triumph on his face. He was dead before he hit the ground.
The scene from the movie and the book are the same.
