Book vs. movie


I'm concerned about the undifferentiated mixture of quotes from the book Clockwork Orange and the movie A Clockwork Orange. There are notes that make some citations clear, but the current state of this article suggests that anything that isn't explicitly cited as a movie reference is from the book, and I'm highly sceptical that this is true. We had two articles, but they both appeared to be primarily for the book, so the recent merger was logical. But we should either:

  • Separate the quotes explicitly (possibly into Book, Movie, and possibly Common sections), or
  • Retain the two articles and ensure that each source's quotes are in the appropriately titled article, with a line at the top of each making clear which of the two the article is about and providing a link to the other.

- Yeah, the one about "No time for the old in and out" is from the movie and is not included in the book at all, and that's the only one that needs to be done, I guess. Because there is only one quote that is exclusive to the movie on this page, I'm sure we can just add a parenthesis that says "Movie only."

Lets not make another separate section until there are a lot more quotes and there are more sepperate ones. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 15:56, 17 March 2006

Since May 2005 there is already a separate article for the film at A Clockwork Orange (film). I suspect that most of the accumulated material in this article is from the film. It would be very helpful if someone who has a copy of the book would re-format the article with chapter and/or page citations, and clear out all the stuff that is not in the book. ~ Ningauble (talk) 19:04, 21 June 2012 (UTC)Reply



Why is there Spanish in this article?

Not Spanish, it's Nadsat. Sioraf 14:11, 11 February 2009 (UTC)Reply
