is a 1968 western novel by Charles Portis. The novel was adapted for screenplay of the 1969 movie of the same name directed by Henry Hathaway. In 2010, Coen brothers directs, writes, and produces the second adaptation of Portis's novel writing most of the script. Of nineteen films directed by Coen brothers, only and are adapted from novel. (released as in Korea), is the only remake of an existing film by Coen brothers. The story plot of the novel or the 1969 or 2010 do not differ greatly, however by emphasizing on different subjects, the character development is slightly altered and in the end, all three are perceived as unique. By comparing what each story is trying to emphasis, examining different cinematic devices, and how it relates to previous worldviews of modern America seen through Coen brothers, portrays a dark society continuously consuming and while illustrating origin of problematic American society.
