New Featured Resource: Animal Farm (the Movie)

We have a new featured resource, a video available in Youtube of the first movie version of George Orwell's Animal Farm. It turns out that this version involved a special office of the CIA, that even rewrote some of Orwell's story! The story is there, along with links to articles and lectures talking about it.

Also, there are links to propaganda films available in the Internet Archive, such as the famous "Duck and Cover" short for children, featuring Bert the Turtle, who teaches children how to save themselves from injury during a nuclear attack!
