In a totalitarian future society, Winston Smith, whose daily work is re-writing history, tries to rebel by falling in love.
Walter Gotell (Guard) also played a different sort of guard in The Guns of Navarone (1961). He played Oberleutnant Meusel, the German who was temporarily in charge of the captured Navarone team (until the S.S. arrived).
O'Connor of the Inner Party:
You will be hollow. We will squeeze you empty and fill you with ourselves, with love of Big Brother.
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."
