Today, we have lots of environmental causes that get attention. Fifty years ago, we were introduced to the idea of animal rights with Born Free, the movie that introduced us to a lioness named Elsa.
Here is the movie trailer:

From tomorrow through next Wednesday, 70 films will be screened for the 6th Annual Green Film Festival in San Francisco. Virginia McKenna Travers, the woman who played Joy Adamson ( book author and the real life caregiver for Elsa), will be coming to the Castro Theater on April 20 for a celebration of the groundbreaking film.

Bill Travers, McKenna’s husband and the other lead in the film, passed away years ago. But he was honored as a conservationist and for serving in the  military.
