Some media suggestions for kids
Video: George Orwell's Animal farm, 1954 release.
|hulu.com provides streamed video content for free with a few brief commercial advertisements.|
Based on the classic novel by George Orwell, Animal Farm tells the story of a group of farm animals who successfully revolt against their cruel human owner, only to be enslaved anew by the unscrupulous pig Napoleon, whose slogan is "all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others." Presented here in its 50th Anniversary edition, Animal Farm combines superb animation, brilliant Technicolor®, and a host of memorable characters to create a timeless fable.
This is one of my personal favorites. Some may complain about the audio and picture quality. I submit that the story line it true to Orwell and it's suitable for family viewing (aside from the obscenity that is communism, of course)
Note: According to one report, a 1999 animated remake of the same title managed to twist Orwell's classic into a disney-fied happy ending. My citations point to known-good releases. Maybe someone could embed the proper relearnhistory.com amazon links for me?
