In the Book In the Movie
   Joseph Leland is a retired cop. His name is changed to John McClain and he is an active New York city police officer.
   Leland is on his way to Los Angeles to visit his Daughter. McClain is visiting his estranged wife.
   The setting is the Klaxxon Oil company building. The action takes place at the Nakatomi building.
   Leiland's daughter Stephanie Gennaro is in a relationship with Harry Ellis. McClain's wife, Holly Gennaro, has a friendly relationship with Ellis.
   The purpose of the terrorist takeover was to allow the West German radical group to uncover an illegal arms shipment Klaxxon was making to a Chilean dictatorship. They are only acting like terrorists to get the power shut down by the FBI so they can break into the safe and steal over 640 million dollars in bearer bonds.
