A picture worth a dozen words

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But is it really? Say for a 2hrs long movie played at 24fps, this equals 172800 pics, equal 1.728 billion words. Say a novel has 500 pages each with 200 words, amounting to 0.1 million words. Yet a lot of things are to be excluded from the book when adapting it for a movie. So maybe a picture is worth not a thousand words but a dozen. Later 🙂
