The purpose of this study is to analyze American remake versions of the original British films taking narrative as a basis. It claims that the American remakes put America forward as a cultural product for sale, and makes the British narrative Americanized. For the study, two sets of film remakes have been chosen for analysis: Altie (1966, dir. Lewis Gilbert), Attie (2004, dir. Charles Shyer), Bedazzled (1967, dir. Stanley Doren), Bedazzled (2000, dir. Harold Ramis). This study explores the narrative elements of the American remakes by comparing the remakes with their originals. These narrative elements are setting, intertextuality and Americanization.
