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.

It reminds me of the movie "The Mist" in some events. A Group breaking up and the ending.

actually Ralph also said he was the boss when the officer came. Ralph is more insulting in the book than the movie.
