Wildlife classic starring Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers as real life game wardens Joy and George Adamson who found themselves raising three lion cubs in Kenya when their mother is killed. When two of the cubs are despatched to Rotterdam Zoo, only little Elsa is left, forcing a bond with her unlikely foster parents. However, they have to face the fact that - one day - she must return to the wild. John Barry picked up two Oscars - one for the score and one for the song Born Free belted out by Matt Munro.
