Nineteen Eighty-Four (1954)

UK 107m, B&W
Director: Rudolph Cartier; Cast: Peter Cushing, André Morell, Yvonne Mitchell, Donald Pleasence

As a BBC television adaptation of George Orwell’s 1949 novel, Nineteen-Eighty-Four is technically limited stage-like production, that nevertheless, captures the ominous essence of a dystopian future ruled by big brother and enforced by the thought police. A frightening film, that would be remade as a motion picture in 1956 and again in 1984, this original version is a nightmarish production that was highly controversial when it was originally broadcast (Klaus Ming March 2017).
