Storyboard Text

  • Theme: Dreams
  • Symbol: Cards
  • Character: Slim
  • Curley, the son of the boss, is a thin young man wearing high-heeled boots. He dreams to be a strong man like Lennie, and he is always jealous at big guys and picking fights with them. As an amateur boxer, he is extremely ambitious. He proves himself by marrying a physically attractive woman. However, since he gets married, he becomes even cockier because his wife seems to be a temptress flirting with other men in the ranch even though he does not allow her to talk to any one.
  • In chapter two, George is shown to be a fan of solitaire, a game which can be played by only one person. The cards represent loneliness. Like everyone else in the ranch, George feels lonely. However, they deal with this in different ways: Lennie mimics George’s every action; Curley’s wife flirts with every man there; Candy keeps an old dog as his friend… George, though accompanied by Lennie, enjoys playing solitaire, which explains how isolated they are during the Depression.
  • Slim, described as “the prince of the ranch”, is respected by the rest of the people. He is good-looking, and an expert in his job. Undoubtedly, he is a perfect man, a distinctive existence in the ranch. There are only few detailed descriptions about Slim in chapter two, but his debut is absolutely impressive: “There was a gravity in his manner and a quiet so profound that all talk stopped when he spoke. His authority was so great that his word was taken on any subject, be it politics or love.”(p 33)
