This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Alex's weapon of choice is a britva (razor). He wields a cane with a knife concealed in the handle.
   When trying to escape from the cat lady's house, Alex is stopped by Dim, who attacks him and leaves him for the police. Dim uses his "oozy" (or chain) to whip Alex across the face. Dim smashes a milk bottle across the side of Alex's head.
   While imprisoned Alex learns of the death of his former droog Georgie during a botched burglary. Alex meets with Dim and Georgie after his release from prison, but what happened to Pete during Alex's incarceration is unknown.
   F. Alexander recognises Alex through a number of careless references to the previous attack (e.g., his wife then claiming they did not have a telephone). Alex is recognised when singing the song 'Singing in the Rain' in the bath.
   Alex is conditioned against all music. He is only averse to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.
