THE BOOTLEG FILES: “1984″

BOOTLEG FILES 047: “1984″ (the 1954 BBC production and the 1956 British feature film versions of the Orwell novel).

LAST SEEN: The 1954 version was televised on the BBC on June 14, 2003; we cannot confirm the last public presentation of the 1956 version.

AMERICAN HOME VIDEO: Neither version has been released on U.S. home video.

REASON FOR DISAPPEARANCE: Not certain, but most likely due to problems in clearing the rights to the Orwell source text.

CHANCES OF SEEING A HOME VIDEO/DVD RELEASE: Perhaps some day.

BOOTLEG OPPORTUNITIES: Not hard to find.
