- Differences from The Novel
Arnold "Arnie" Cunningham (Keith Gordon) is an awkward, unpopular teen with only one friend, Dennis Guilder (John Stockwell). Arnie's life begins to change when he buys a used, badly battered red-and-white 1958 Plymouth Fury named "Christine," in need of extensive repairs. Arnie begins to restore Christine at a local repair shop and junkyard, Darnell's Autobody, but as he spends more of his time working on the car, he discards his glasses, dresses more like a 1950s greaser and develops an arrogant personality. Arnie's new girlfriend, Leigh Cabot (Alexandra Paul), and Dennis discover the car's previous owner was obsessed with Christine and committed suicide in it by carbon monoxide poisoning. On New Year's Eve, Dennis and Leigh reason that the only way to stop Christine and save Arnie is to destroy the car. Dennis scratches "Darnell's Tonight"--referencing the name of the junkyard--into Christine's hood, then makes his way there with Leigh. Dennis waits in a bulldozer while Leigh hea...Keith Gordon as Arnold "Arnie" CunninghamJohn Stockwell as Dennis GuilderAlexandra Paul as Leigh CabotRobert Prosky as Will Darnell
John Carpenter also composed the musical score for the film. The film was too light to be rated R, so at the time of its release, it would have been rated PG. (The PG-13 rating didn't exist yet) So, the producers added the word 'fuck' multiple times so more people would see the film. Christine's license plate is yellow and says CQB, which means Close Quarters Battle, where it is a duel between two people, and one is obviously overpowered, with little chance of escape.
In the scene where Buddyand his gang trash Christine before denting the engine Buddy grabs the bonnet and throws it up with such force that he throws the bonnet off and away. But when Christine shows her regenerative powers to Arnie her bonnet miraciously comes back. After Christine crushes Richie against the wall and Don backsaway after Buddy's camaro leaks gasoline there is a car on a hoist. But when the gas station blows up it is on the ground. There is no engine under Buddy's camaro when Christine crashes into it. 1958 plymouth furies did not have door lock buttons as depicted in the film. When Leigh visits Arnie's hair is slightly wet.

The novel opens with a line of dialogue from Arnie, pleading with his best (and essentially only) friend, Dennis Guilder, to back up so Arnie can see the yard they just passed. From the very first time he speaks of the 1958 Plymouth Fury for sale in Roland D. LeBay's unkempt yard, Arnie calls the car "her." Dennis rightly recognizes that it was love at first sight for Arnie. The shy and myopic teenager eagerly goes to examine the decaying Plymouth up close, ignoring Dennis' obvious dismay at the appallingly-poor state of the car. When Roland LeBay comes outside to see what the two boys are up to, Arnie immediately declares his intent to buy the car. LeBay brushes Dennis off and Arnie soon negotiates his buying Christine for $250. Buying the car starts a fight with both his parents that runs the entire length of the novel, effectively creating open warfare in the formerly-uneventful Cunningham household. Dennis reflects that Arnie's parents are nowhere near as open-minded or fair as...
In the film, Arnie is played by Keith Gordon and is largely identical in behavior to his character from the novel. In this version, Arnie buys Christine from George LeBay, as Roland had died six weeks before the start of the film. Arnie argues bitterly with his parents over the Plymouth and takes her to the auto repair garage Will Darnell owns. Darnell is furious at the foul exhaust the car spews everywhere, but ultimately lets the car stay. Soon, Dennis learns that LeBay's wife died in Christine of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning. Over time, Arnie falls increasingly under Christine's influence, acting, speaking and dressing differently from before. After Buddy and Co. trash her, he takes his anger out on Leigh Cabot, essentially abandoning her for Christine. At an empty Darnell's, Arnie swears revenge on the people who trashed Christine and vows to repair her. Christine begins to repair herself as he witnesses, and after Arnie steps back and says, "Okay, show me,", she shines her headlig...He along with Helen Shyres and Teddy Duchamp are one of the main Stephen Kingcharacters to have round glasses.Arnie's father was originally going to be the one who flew through Christine's windshield in the fight at Darnell's garage, as a deleted scene shows.In the book, Arnie is influenced by LeBay's spirit, which is the source of Christine's power. In the film, Christine herself is simply "evil" and Arnie is gradually possessed by her instead.
