Dark, disturbing, and very European, _Animal Farm_ marked an auspicious feature debut from Britain's Halas and Batchelor animation studio. The film was produced by "March of Time" newsreel mogul Louis de Rochemont, and partly financed by the CIA (though by all accounts the CIA had no editorial control over the finished product).

In adapting George Orwell's anti-Stalinist beast fable for the screen, Halas and Batchelor dropped several minor characters, jettisoned most of the humor, and created a new finale -- which, though slightly more optimistic than the novel, hardly qualifies as a happy ending. Orwell purists have never forgiven them, even though this version of _Animal Farm_ succeeds admirably on its own terms.

Despite a few Disneyesque moments, _Animal Farm_ is not suitable for children.

I think I'll hire a pig to help me fill out my income tax forms next year!

I loved the book by George Orwell, but I totally love the movie even more! It's cute, funny, enetertaining, interesting, and even weirdly creepy at the same time.
