This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Alex commits, or is blamed for, a second murder. This takes place in the prison cell and the victim is a quarrelsome man who is not liked by any of the other inmates. One particular night they decide to "teach him a lesson". Some hold him down while others take a go at him. Alex finishes it off and the inmates decide to blame it all on him. The other inmates aren't a big part of the movie.
   Alex takes home and rapes two 10-year-old girls, Marty and Sonietta, after meeting them in a record shop. Alex buys the girls ice cream and food prior to raping them. The girls are teenagers, and their sexual encounter with Alex appears to be (at least mostly) consensual. He doesn't provide them with food at all.
   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.
   F. Alexander has 3 co-conspirators join him in taking care of Alex. Only two co-conspirators.
   Alex's weapon of choice is a britva (razor). He wields a cane with a knife concealed in the handle.
