The Quiz: The CIA bought the rights to books by what author to change the endings?

Mark Twain
Joseph Heller
Jules Verne
George Orwell

Explanation : The CIA was so concerned with George Orwell’s novels “Animal Farm” and “1984,” it bought the rights to both books so it could change the endings for the film versions. In “Animal Farm,” the original ending found both the pigs (representing Communists) and humans ( capitalists) equally villainous, but the CIA-produced animated version made the story more anti-Communist by showing only the pigs as corrupt. In “1984,” the book ends with the protagonist, Winston, submitting to Big Brother. In the film, he dies heroically yelling “down with Big Brother!”

Correct Answer: George Orwell
