When game warden George Adamson (Travers) is forced to kill a man-eating lion and defensive lioness, he and his wife Joy (McKenna) adopt three orphaned cubs. But before long, the three cubs are too large to care for, and two of them are sent off to zoos. The third cub, a female named Elsa, is kept for a while longer. When Elsa becomes full-grown, the Adamsons realize that she was Born Free and must be set free and taught to survive on her own. A year later the Adamsons return to Kenya and are surprised by a very special welcome from their old friend. Based on Joy Adamson
The anamorphically enhanced 2.40:1 DVD exhibits a picture that is certainly dated, with slightly low contrast. Images are a bit soft, especially in the backgrounds but, otherwise, details can be nicely rendered. Colors are nicely balanced, though the picture tends to flicker with slight changes in hue. The source element is revealing of occasional artifacts and grain, but rarely anything that can be considered too excessive. Edge enhancement can provide an annoying hard edge around images, and there is some occasional breakup due to pixelization. (Suzanne Hodges)
