There is seemingly little similiarity between C. S. Lewis and Ken Russell, but there is one similiarity that actually points out their differences.

"The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe"
Book: C. S. Lewis
Script: Ann Peacock and Andrew Adamson
Star: Tilda Swinton

"The Lair of the White Worm"
Book: Bram Stoker
Script: Ken Russell
Star: Amanda Donohoe

In each film, there is a scene in which we have a teenage boy standing beside the side of the road, in bad weather, the villainess comes around and picks the boy up in her vehicle and tries to seduce the boy before they reach her home. And that is where the similiarity ends.

C. S. Lewis
The attempted seduction is through his stomach, as she offers him his favorite Turkish Delight.

Ken Russell
The attempted seduction is through his sexual organs, as she offers him her body.

C.S. Lewis
The boy's betrayal is greater, as he eventually betrays the whole of Narnia to the villainess.

Ken Russell
The boy's betrayal is lesser, as he betrays only himself, his little girl friend, and perhaps his mum.

C.S. Lewis
The betrayal is greater, but the boy is still offered a chance to redeem himself, before the end.

Ken Russell
The betrayal is lesser, but the boy is offered no chance to redeem himself, before the end. For as soon as the boy offers his betrayal to the villainess, he is killed.
