Without a doubt, Born Free is a first-rate film adaptation of Joy Adamson's book about actual events where a lioness named Elsa is raised as a pet by two Kenya game wardens.

Born Free is a sincere and engrossing picture that is highly recommended as family viewing. This beautifully photographed film can easily be enjoyed by all ages.

This 1966 movie has a running time of approx. 96 minutes. It won Oscars for both "Best Original Score" and for "Title Song".

There was no doubt about it - In "Born Free" it was Elsa, the lioness, who repeatedly stole the show with her wonderful performance playing herself, a spoiled, pampered, and truly adorable feline of the big-cat family.

At times the always-gentle Elsa and her playful antics were so irresistable that you just couldn't help but fall in love with her.

Based on a true-life story, "Born Free" is an exceptional adventure that was beautifully photographed on the vast, golden savannas of central Africa.

"Born Free" is a tale of courage and love, nature and human nature, and a relationship unlike any other that you've ever seen.

This film, from 1966, which won Oscars for "Best Original Score" and "Title Song", is a real treat that can be equally enjoyed by all ages.
