1954 ANIMAL FARM ORIGINAL DVD
Louis de Rochemont
John Halas & Joy Batchelor
To Orwell Today,
re: See ANIMAL FARM 1954 MOVIE
I have just discovered to my horror a pirated-looking DVD of our film Animal Farm .
The sleeve does not give us or De Rochemont Films Inc any credit and does not use the original art work.
Please would you help me to find the company putting this product out illegally.
The film is still in copyright and no way should be sold outside of the agreed distribution agents. In the USA that is Image Entertainment.
Any help would be appreciated.
THE HALAS & BATCHELOR COLLECTION
I have a DVD copy (sent by a reader two years ago) of the Halas & Batchelor 1954 production of ANIMAL FARM. It gives your company credit on the back sleeve (see front & back covers scanned above) and in the opening and closing credits of the movie. It also names De Rochement in the credits, as excerpted above.
I wrote a review after I watched it in October 2006 saying it was excellent in every way. See ANIMAL FARM 1954 MOVIE GOOD
I went to your website just now and viewed your ANIMAL FARM clips and compared them to the DVD I've got and they're the same - so it's definitely the Halas & Batchelor original art work and production in this digitally remastered version put out by Digiview Productions in 2004.
All the best,
