Write a short analysis of the similarities and differences in the film clip from The Wizard of Oz and the excerpt from the novel.
The film version was much different from the textual version. It contained another character, Glenda the good witch- who arrives in a glowing ball, was not mentioned in the original text. In the text, she was approached immediately by a group of the “queerest people she had ever seen”, but in the film version they were hiding in the flowers. In the film version, Glenda was the first to speak to Dorothy, but in the text, the munchkins spoke to her first – calling her a Sorceress. In both versions, Dorothy is said to have killed the witch. In both versions the setting is shown or described with vivid colors, but in the film there is no small brook. Finally, there are red shoes on the dead witch in the film, but in the text it says, “two feet were sticking out, shod in silver shoes with pointed toes.”
Explain which source most likely has the most credible information about the Zoot Suit Riots. Support your explanation using two pieces of evidence from the most credible source.
I believe the source, “Zoot Suits Set Off Rage of Vigilante Servicemen” contains more credible information. This article is written for the Los Angeles Times. The article presents many facts about the riots. For example, June of 1943, when the riots began, and January of 1943, when the Sleepy Lagoon Trial was underway, were both mentioned in article 1. In the same source it is noted that Alice Greenfield McGrath was mentioned. She was the executive secretary of the defense committee. Sheriff’s Capt. Edward Duran Ayers was also quoted, and he would be someone I would consider credible too, as he works for the police.
