Differences between Inherit the Wind book and movie?
The most striking difference is the Native Dancer Story. In the play, Drummond tells the story to Cates while they are waiting for the verdict to come in. [In my opinion the proper place for it.] In the movie, Drummond tells it to Brady on the porch of the hotel after the first day of testimony. It takes some of he edge off the story and its purpose in the movie is somewhat blunted.

It is about the debate between "creationism" and "darwinism" On the surface that is true. The movie was made in response to McCarthyism and was an attempt to show the public t…hrough film how mob mentality can get out of hand.
You read a book and you watch a movie. A movie that derives from a book is usually a bit different than the book itself.
Besides the obvious , movies condense books for time and economic reasons. The movie may also contain scenes that are not in the book. This is done for several reasons which i…nclude the idea that an addition to the movie may enhance the story.
If you have read the book, the differences are very obvious. I personally dislike the movie because it leaves out some very important scenes and most of the rest were cu…t short and modified to the degree where the movie was extremely loosely based on the book. If you really want to see the differences, read the book then watch the movie. Things are usually better that way, anyways.

The first fact is: Inherit the Wind was never a book in the sense that it was a work of fiction intended to be read. It is a play: intended to be performed. It is a fictio…nalized account of the Scopes Monkey Trial in Dayton, Tennessee during the 1920s. The name of the place is changed to Hillsborough, and the names of the characters who are based on the real people are changed. This allows for more dramatic license on the part of the playwrights, Lawrence and Lee; though many of the events of the play have a basis in the actual trial, including the defense attorney calling the prosecuting attorney to the stand as a witness.
I've seen both the movie and read the book. As with any book that's made into a movie, there are many parts cut out to make the movie shorter
Well, some scenes were taken out, and some things from scenes in the book, were made into a different scene The book is amazing,More spectacular than the movie..There is a lot… of differences.mainly more added things to the book.Like for example rosalie was meant to be with edward that why propably she is acting jelous of Bella,Alice also has another story Where James told Bella when he attacked her.Also the relationship between edward and Bella is much more fun and intensed than the movie. Another funny thing is that mike newton,Eric and tailer asked Bella to the dance. she refused and told them she cant,but tyler said replied to her saying ok there is still the prom,Where he kept telling all the people he is gonna take Bella to the prom,Edward was jelous then and he told Bella later he was listening to the conversation and he was jelous though Bella and edward wasnt talking right then.And then at the end when Bella was in the car was edward charlie called edward to tell him that tyler is waiting at the house for Bella, he told him ok put him in, he talked to him ironically and told him she is occupied. and she is only for me. :D.....You ought to read the book its really funny and very romantic.Hope i was useful
The jury found Cates guilty as charged. Since this was the first trial of its kind, Cates was only charged a $100 fine. Drummond, unhappy with the verdict, appeals the case to… a higher court, which sets Cates' bail at $500. E.K. Hornbeck, the new reporter, secretly pays the bail to the mayor, which allows Cates from jail.
To truly answer this question would take more time than anyone should bother with, but I can give the overall differences: Missing from the movie was the character of Patrick… Hockstetter, as well as a few more minor characters, and the history of the monster in the town of Derry. In the movie, Beverly didn't have sex with the boys in the tunnels on their way out after they believed they killed the monster when they were 12 (early). The character of Beverly Marsh in the book was a very tough tomboyish girl who didn't take crap from anyone (except her father). In the movie, she was played by actresses who portrayed her as very meek, both in her 12 year old and adult years.The movie left out the entire part of the book when they were in the "macrospace" and mentally fighting the monster. In the movie this was simply portrayed as them being hypnotized by the monster. In the movie, the 12 year old group never made it to the "lair of it". They met up with Pennywise in the cellars in some random place.No mention of the Turtle in the movie.Many interactions with Henry were left out of the movie. There are so many more differences, but I think I hit on most of the ones that really took away important context from the movie version.
The movie is really bad, the book, sublime.
In the book, Shelly and Miranda have a fight at the basket boys auction. In the movie some names changed like Matt and Mike was Matt and Mark, uncle David was uncle Daniel, Sh…elly Stalls was Sherry stalls. ETC......

I know that Aeolus is a waterfall. But in the book it says that he is a person and he has 6 daughters and 6 sons.
Yes, there are some differences For example, in the book Hooper has an affair with Chief Brody's wife, and he is killed by the shark. Quint's story about the USS Indianapolis …is not in the book. In the book, the shark was not killed by an exploding air tank. In the book, Quint is killed when his foot gets caught on some rope and he is dragged into the water and drowns. He is eaten by the shark in the movie. In the book, the mayor is being blackmailed by he mob to keep the beaches open.
