1984 is a 1956 British black-and-white science fiction drama film, freely based on the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell, depicting a totalitarian future society. This is the first cinema rendition of the story, directed by Michael Anderson and starring Edmond O'Brien as protagonist Winston Smith, and featuring Donald Pleasence, Jan Sterling, and Michael Redgrave. The character O'Brien, the antagonist, was renamed "O'Connor", due to the shared surname of the actor Edmond O'Brien.

In 1954, Peter Cushing and Andre Morell starred in a BBC-TV made-for-TV adaptation that was extremely popular with British audiences, which led to the making of the 1956 O'Brien theatrical film version. Pleasence had also appeared in the 1954 television version, playing the character of Syme, which for the film was amalgamated with that of Parsons.
