The stories were both different but the remake adaptation is cooler and more enjoyable. There were some moments where there was some similarity especially the way Tony treats his sister.

For sheer innovation, Scarface: Shame of a Nation might just be the best of the three most infamous and enduring pre-noir/pre-code gangster classics that essentially dictated the language and look of the genre. (The other two would be Little Caesar and The Public Enemy.) That’s not to say that Scarface is a perfect film however, it’s brisk pace leaves behind many supporting characters and some... read more

“For sheer innovation, Scarface: Shame of a Nation might just be the best of the three most infamous and enduring pre-noir/pre-code gangster classics that essentially dictated the language and look of the genre. (The other two would be Little Caesar and The Public Enemy.) That’s not to say that Scarface is a perfect film however, it’s brisk pace leaves behind many supporting characters and sometimes misplaces the emphasis on which ones it should be developing more for one. But still, the fact that it practically defined the conventions and filmic language of an entire genre cannot be denied or diminished.
