Animal Farm 1954 was produced by John Halas and Joy Batchelor, based on George Orwell’s Animal Farm. Animal Farm 1954 was the first British animated film that has been released. The Animal Farm movie earned not only positive criticism, since the CIA paid for the filming as part of a US offensive against communism during the Cold War, leading to an influence on the representation of Orwell’s book. Both, Halas and Batchelor, did propaganda film for the British government before.

Animal Farm 1981 movie
Animal Farm 1981 has nothing to do with George Orwells Animal Farm. It is a shameful pornographic bootleg video. It shows Animal Lover Bodil Joensen having sex with various animals. In 1981 the tape was speciously smuggled into the United Kingdom. Since then it gets handed around in the underground market.
