All My Sons1



In the movie there were difference then in the book. In this book and movie All My Sons there are certain statements one was “If you want to know ask Joe” another is “there is a universe outside your responsible.” Both these statements are important in the book and movie. The black and white movie made it seem setting was in the 1940’s.
There are alot of similarities and difference between the book and the movie All My Sons. One difference was in the movie there was no mention of the tree falling like there was in the book. Another difference between the book and the movie was that in the book Larry disappeared November 25. In the movie Larry disappeared February 9. In the book Chris never went to see Anne’ s father in jail, but in the movie he did. Another difference was that people never played cards with Joe in the book but in the movie they did. At the end of the movie Anne and Chris go away with each other but in the book that never happened.
The effect of the movie in black and white really was a symbol. It gave the sense that it is in the 1940’s. It gave it sense that it was a different time and people acted differently. A black and white movie makes the Scene look sad. It also gives a point of some kind if the movie is black and white.
In the movie they said “If you want to know ask Joe.” The meaning is that Joe really knows everything that is going on. He cut some corners like with the cylinders and the refrigerator door in the movie. Joe said to Steve that he would take full responsibility for the action of sending the cylinders out on the phone. Joe did not take full responsibility for the cylinders. People will not do anything without Joe’s taking responsibility because they know what happen with Steve.
In the movie and book there also was the statement “there is a universe outside your responsible,” Chris said that. This statement means that you are responsible for other people you have never met or will met if you manufacture something. You are responsible to make sure the product is good and it will not hurt or kill any one like Joe was responsible for the twenty-one pilots that crashed because the cylinders were cracked.
The movie and book have many similarities and difference like the different dates Larry disappeared. The movie in black and white makes it seem that it is in the 1940’s. It also makes it seem that it is sad. The statement “If you want to know ask Joe,” says that Joe knows almost everything. The statement “there is a universe outside your responsible,” means that Joe has to take responsibility for the 21 polities killed because of the cylinders.
