The 1966 adventure drama Born Free (1966) tells the beautifully crafted true tale of naturalists Joy and George Adamson (then-married couple Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers) and their dedicated and perilous struggle to rehabilitate the orphaned and home-raised lion cub Elsa and reintroduce her to the wild with the skills she needs to survive.

BornFree1Based on Joy Adamson’s global best-seller and directed on location in Africa by James Hill, the instant audience and critical favorite has undergone a new Sony Pictures 4K restoration and its gorgeously photographed (by Kenneth Talbot) visual splendor will be showcased on Twilight Time’s new hi-def Blu-ray,.

John Barry’s ravishing score for the film will be showcased on an isolated track, and there will be an audio documentary by movie music authority Jon Burlingame and Twilight Time’s own Julie Kirgo and Nick Redman.
