PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Study Guide compares the book The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane to the movie The Red Badge of Courage (1951) starring Audie Murphy, Bill Mauldin, John Dierkes, Royal Dano, Arthur Hunnicut, Tim Durant, Douglas Dick, Robert Easton Burke, and Andy Devine. Screenplay by John Huston. Directed by John Huston. A Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Picture. (Black and White) The black and white movie with Audie Murphy is still the most accurate. The movie takes a few liberties with characters and plot, but it’s basically the book on film.

WHAT’S IN THE BOOK THAT’S NOT IN THE MOVIE?
Jim Conklin washing his shirt at the brook, Henry’s mother, the argument between Conklin and Tom Wilson in Chapter I, the soldier’s attempt to steal a horse, the packet of letters, the lieutenant’s hand wound, the chapel-like scene with the dead soldier in the woods, the tattered soldier mistaking Henry for Tom Jamison, Chapter 11 (Henry contemplates running away from battle), Chapter 15 (Henry daydreams about returning from war and telling stories of combat), getting water for the dying Jimmie Rogers, “mud diggers” . . .

Tom Wilson washing his shirt at the brook, Henry’s letter to his Pa, Bill Porter, Tim Foster, a soldier’s attempt to steal a pig, the pocket watch, Henry’s story about getting shot, the friendly general, Henry’s confession about running away . . .
