George Orwell’s Animal Farm (a 1954 animated movie like an audiobook)

SFFaudio News

One piece of criticism I like about this 1954 animated film adaptation of Animal Farm is from an IMDB reviewer named “bob the moo” who wrote: “the narration-heavy delivery makes it more like an audio book than a film.”

I can’t quite agree, it is a movie, but it does certainly leans heavily on the narration.

Most reviewers seem to think it’s a pretty good adaptation, Leonard Maltin gave it four stars, and it is fairly faithful to the novel’s plot. Despite being one of Britian’s first animated features it was apparently funded by the CIA.
