The animals of a farm successfully revolt against its human owner, only to slide into a more brutal tyranny amongst themselves.
The ten dogs provided in this movie came from Fircroft Animal Actors, located in Ireland. The Border Collie who played Jessie, was named Spice, and the Rottweiler who played Pincher, was named Astro. They were owned by their trainers, Mary Owens, and Rita Moloney.
I've no wish to take life. Not even human life.
When the animals discover Old Major's head while exploring the butchery, they all flee. In one shot, Jessie is running amongst the other dogs. Jessie was inside the barn giving birth at the time, and would not have been present when the other animals were in the house.
