Britain's second animated feature, which, despite the title and Disney-esque animal animation, is in fact a no-holds-barred adaptation of George Orwell's classic satire on Stalinism, with the animals taking over their farm by means of a revolutionary coup, but then discovering that although all animals are supposed to be equal, some are more equal than others...

After the first battle, the color of the puppies changes between shots - cream-ivory colored when we first see them, grey when Napoleon takes them up into the barn. See more »

Wings count as legs.

This animated film version of the classic George Orwell novel, Animal Farm, is faithful to the book's story. After reading Animal Farm, I watched this movie which was a colorized version of the story. This film is ahead of it's time in 1954 so you have to understand that the quality may not be that great and their are only two male voices offering to play all the roles which includes the wonderful Maurice Denham OBE. The story of animals who run a farm after chasing the evil, Mr. Jones away. The animals believe they can run the farm better than Mr. Jones. The problem is that Napoleon, the pig leader or big boar, takes charge and moves into Jones' house and begins breaking the rules that they were founded upon in Animal Farm. Slowly, we see the problems arose among the animals and the unhappiness, greed, and power-hungry of some versus the others.
