This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   The pilot of a jet plane is found in the cave. He is believed to be the beast. The pilot was with the boys when they crashed. He was delusional and escaped and went to the cave. He died there and the boys eventually found his body.
   When the boys fail to keep the signal fire lit, a ship passes and they don't get rescued. It is an airplane that passes.
   There is a boy with a large mulberry birthmark on his face. He doesn't appear.
   The conch is eventually shattered when Piggy is killed. The conch is not shown being destroyed.
   Jack attempts to get the boys to revote the leadership and when he fails, he leaves the group to start his own. There is no revote because Ralph is of a higher rank and was the leader almost by default. Jack simply leaves the group and starts his own.

Why isn't the 1963 movie included in this list?

Technically, though, the parachutist was a pilot who ejected from a plane that was shot down in the air battles going on high in the skies, but you are right. That parachutist/pilot was dead when he was found, and the pilot from the 1990's movie was live and with the boys from the beginning.

so inaccurate, wow, first off, there is no pilot, but a parachutist, and he is found on the mountain. I'm pretty sure there is no boy with broken arm. And Ralph doesn't insult Piggy, lol, and no Ralph only says 2 people died on the island and nothing else when the officer found him.
