The biggest difference is that most of the story in the film is presented as a flashback, while everything in the stage version happens in chronological order. But there are other differences, and one of them somewhat waters down the plot. In the play, Billy Bigelow commits suicide to avoid being captured by the police, while in the film he dies accidentally while trying to escape from them. Another difference is that, in the stage version of "Carousel", there is use of recitative (sung conversation that always leads to an actual composed song), while in the film, much of this recitative is simply turned into spoken dialogue. Occasionally a word or two will be changed in the lyrics, but this is usually for censorship reasons. One of the few lyrics changed just for the sake of changing it is in the song "You'll Never Walk Alone". The original lyric was "When you walk through a storm, keep your chin up high", and for the film this was changed to the now more familiar "When you walk through a storm, hold your head up high". The powerful, rousing song that Billy sings late in the stage version -- "The Highest Judge of All" -- is omitted from the film. The songs "You're a Queer One, Julie Jordan" and "Blow High, Blow Low" were recorded for the film, but not used. They can both be heard on the film soundtrack album and as extras on the 50th Anniversary DVD of the film, although the visual footage is not on the DVD and the songs are heard only as supplements. (On the soundtrack CD, they are heard in their rightful place.) However, the film is largely extremely faithful to the original stage version, retaining most of the dialogue. None of Billy's physically abusive behavior is shown, but then, up until the 1994 revival of the musical, it wasn't shown onstage either.
