This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Jack has red hair and is the leader of the group of choir boys. He is blond and is a Cadet from the military school.
   Simon loses him mind and when he sees the severed Pig's head it talks to him and he sees it as the Lord of the Flies. Simon only stares at the head while the buzzing of the flies gets progressively louder.
   Ralph often insults Piggy. He rarely does.
   The boys are British. They are American.
   When the British Naval officer finds Ralph he talks to him and Ralph tells him all about the killings of Simon and Piggy. Ralph doesn't say anything to the Marine.

If you know a difference, don't comment, Add it above!
actually Ralph also said he was the boss when the officer came. Ralph is more insulting in the book than the movie.

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.
