Medoro 1 Andrew Medoro Ms. Hall English 112DD 29 March 2011 The Contrast of Literature and American Cinema Cat on a Hot Tin Roof was a very eye-opening experience; it was an excellent example of the effect with which dialogue has upon a story, and your experience with it. With nothing but stage descriptions and the conversations taking place between characters we rely almost entirely on the characters to continue and develop the plot as well as set relationships as the story progresses. However, having concluded both the novel and movie versions of the play there were several contrasting differences that stood out for me as a student of literature and a film critic. The influence of sexuality with regards to Maggie’s character, and the conclusion of the film that was much more geared towards your typical Hollywood romantic ending, rather than the more cynical ending, initially intended by Tennessee Williams.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
