BORN FREE (1966) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Virginia McKenna, Bill Travers, Geoffrey Keen, Peter Lukoye
Directed By:  James Hill
Composed By:  John Barry

“Joy Adamson’s best-selling book Born Free has been entrusted to honest, intelligent filmmakers…this film casts an enchantment that is just about irresistible…a poignant but happy reminder of the beauty and mystery of the life cycle.” – Vincent Canby, New York Times

“A sterling case of the family-animal film upgraded to quality status, Born Free is a fine entertainment that approaches its subject with maturity and grace. A must-see when it came out, the story of the lioness Elsa and her human parents may not teach us everything there is to know about lions, but it doesn’t insult our intelligence either.” – Glenn Erickson, DVD Talk

Born Free (1966), a meticulous adaptation of Joy Adamson’s best-selling book, tells the story of a Kenyan game-keeper (Bill Travers) and his animal-loving wife (Virginia McKenna) who adopt a lion cub, Elsa, raising her and eventually giving her up to the wild life she deserves. Told in semi-documentary style, the film features an Academy Award®-winning score by the great John Barry, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.

I have just one thing to say about the Born Free Blu-ray
it is worth the price simply for the isolated score - Barry's film tracks are magnificent, much more interesting than the rerecorded lp

I have just one thing to say about "Born Free"
Don't buy a movie because it won a oscar for best score. The score adds a layer to the film, and at times can help bring out untapped emotions.
Unfortunately this movie was made when it was to go on safari and take young chimpanzees or cubs away from their mothers for zoo's or a play toy until it gets bigger and its tossed to the trash to live it's final years an a small cage. It's tough to watch this "heartwarming" story knowing the life these poor animals have to look forward to. Zoo's are prisons. It's a shame we can't all pay a fee to watch our human prisoners with a tour guid.
Most people don't care about animal trade an importing. So enjoy the film.
