This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   F. Alexander has 3 co-conspirators join him in taking care of Alex. Only two co-conspirators.
   Conspirator Rubinstein is a male. Rubinstein is a female.
   The title of the book comes from a fictional essay F. Alexander was writing, about the Ludovico procedure and how a man with a conscience but that is unable to make his own choices is no longer a man. Alex remembers and mentions this during the demonstration after the experiment's conclusion. The title never comes up, nor is it explained.
   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.
   The gang members wear black tights with cups underneath their tights The gang member wears white pants with their cups over their pants
