Entertainment Review
The article focuses on the film "Animal Farm," produced by Louis de Rochemont. It is a serious pity' that. One can only praise the film version of George Orwell's "Animal Farm" as a valuable beginning or experiment, and hardly more than that. For the project, under the sponsorship of Rochemont, was clearly given the benefit of a great deal of intelligence, devotion and skill, to say almost nothing of the amount of money involved. The reviews in the daily newspaper have already pronounced the damnation of faint praise upon the film with a genuine kindness which will serve no purpose and certainly will not help at the box office.
