In a totalitarian future society, Winston Smith (Edmond O'Brien), whose daily work is re-writing history, tries to rebel by falling in love.
Donald Pleasence (R. Parsons) also appeared in the 1954 television version, playing the character of Syme, which in this movie is amalgamated with that of Parsons.
Maybe we shouldn't have stopped here. I get pretty uneasy when I'm near people who aren't... healthy, if you know what I mean. Oh well. Long live BB!
Winston Smith of the Outer Party: Long live BB!
There are reportedly two endings to this film. The UK version ends with a defiant Winston Smith and Julia being executed by the authorities. The US version is more faithful to Orwell's book and concludes with Winston and Julia being brainwashed into becoming loyal followers of "Big Brother."
