Charles There are 3, a BBC TV version in the early 1950s, a movie in the late 1950s and the one made in 1984 itself. The BBC version is the closest to the novel . The 1984 version has the best effects and the best actors ( John Hurt as Winston and Richard Burton as O'Brien) Hardly anybody praises the late 1950's version -- among other things, they cast a fat guy for the supposedly undernourished Winston.
