The film follows the novel pretty closely, except for one major detail towards the end.

However, it PLAYS differently, at least to some degree, because Lydecker in the book is described very differently (at least physically) than he's portrayed in the movie. He's a big, heavy-set, type. Laird Cregar was originally set to play the part in the movie, and, physically, he's much closer to the character Vera Caspary described.
