storyline is removed, the name of the movie MUST be changed.

Do you think the movie would have been better with this missing piece
of the puzzle included ? Or do you think it works as well without
it? Do you think it would have given Corso more depth or more
mystery?

I think it could of worked both ways for Corso.If they added the extra story line indeed it would of made it more of a mystery therefore more depth to Johnnys character, but for those of us who saw the movie first(like me) I happen to love it the way it is there is something about Coro that keeps me coming back to watch the movie over and over! But then again Id watch JD anywhere!!LOL

I actually look on the book and the film as two seperate stories. TNG
is only a part, and IMHO the least interesting part of TCD. I love
the book, and discovering the importance of Three Musketeers
manuscript towards the end of the book was terrific, poor Corso was
so confused that it had nothing to to with the murders or the Nine
Doors Book. I think it was probably the correct descission to leave
out the CD plot, it would have needed to be shortened far too much
and the film would have become very confusing, and thus suffered for
it. Having said that, I don't understand why the ending was changed.
The ending in the book had me laughing, it was so unexpected and
clever, whereas the film ending just left me confused. I feel Johnny
played Corso very close to the book, so adding the other plot would
probably not have altered our view of the character much.

I do too....leaving both plot lines in would have made the movie too
confusing.
You can spend more time with a book...a movie is supposed to wrap everything up nice and neat
within a two hour or so time frame. There would have been too much story to tell.

I do think there should have been more character development though, for Corso, and I also agree
that I didn't care for the way the ending was changed in the movie. I know, from the commentary,
that Roman didn't like the book ending, or the movie ending for that matter - although he
seemed to blame the ending of the book for the way the movie ending came out as well.
I went into the book expecting to be as disappointed with the ending as I was with the movie.
Imagine my surprise when I loved the book ending.

Good thoughts Lynn!! I was really amazed that Polanski didn't like
his own ending for the movie OR the ending of the book. I agree, the
book ending was much better than the movie. YUCK

Well, this is a boring answer, but I agree with everyone! In the
book, it helps to shed some insight on Corso's knowledge of
literature (and also his knowledge of famous battles!) and how
he uses them to help decipher what's going on. But in the
movie, not only would it be confusing, but I think a viewing
audience would be annoyed at trying to follow it all, only to have it
become somewhat of a red herring.

Cathy (who still has to listen to Polanski's commentary. I tried
last weekend, but could only get through about 10 min. of it- I
didn't seem to be in the mood. But I'll try again soon, when I
have a better attention span!)
