Bioloxi Blues Sgt. Toomey Assignment
Sgt. Toomey Assignment
Compare the differences in the way the character of Sgt. Toomey is presented in the play and in the movie. Here are some thoughts to consider when writing your paper:
• How do the edits of Toomey’s speeches as they appear in the screenplay affect the way the character is drawn in the movie?
• Does the original, unedited dialogue in the play script give you a different visual image of Toomey?
• How are differences in the Toomey character exemplified through the actor, Christopher Walken, and his interpretation of the character? For example, does the Toomey character appear more or less intelligent, etc. than the character as defined in the play script? Be specific using examples.
• Paper should be one page, 1.5 space, cite examples from the play text, using correct grammar, correct spelling and punctuation.
You must use a cover sheet for your name, class hour and title of assignment and staple it to your essay. Do not include this information on the content page of your essay.
If you use any outside resources, please include them on a separate piece of paper. If you use a quote from the play, please note as follows: (Simon, pg. __)
