The 1954 animated film version of Animal Farm by George Orwell features the first blood shown in a cartoon. Disney movies did not show blood until five years later when a dragon was killed by a sword in the 1959 animated film Sleeping Beauty.
Blood appears three times in the cartoon – when a dog bites a farmer, when Boxer is shot in the hoof and when Napoleon begins executing disobedient animals. The killings are not shown on screen, but after animals are murdered, one of the commandments on the side of the barn is amended. The commandment now reads: No animal shall kill another animal WITHOUT CAUSE. The words “without cause” are written in blood.

Is the movie Ethan Frome accurate? The 1993 film is the only movie of the novel by Edith Wharton. Liam Neeson is perfect as Frome. The film has two major flaws: 1. Ethan and Mattie do not have sex in the novel. 2. The narrator of the book is an engineer, not the preacher character in the movie. The movie version of Ethan Frome tells the basic story, but adds action and characters that are not in the book.
