Definition of the adjective 1984

What does 1984 mean as an attribute of a noun?


  1. dystopic, Orwellian


"1984" is a 1956 film, based freely on the novel of the same name by George Orwell, depicting a totalitarian future society. This is the first cinema rendition of the story, directed by Michael Anderson, and featuring Edmond O'Brien as protagonist Winston Smith. Also featured are Donald Pleasence, Jan Sterling, and Michael Redgrave. Pleasence also appeared in the 1954 television version of the novel, playing the character of Syme, which for the movie was amalgamated with that of Parsons. The character O'Brien, the antagonist, was renamed "O'Connor", since the name of the main actor was Edmond O'Brien. After the customary distributor agreement expired, the movie was withdrawn from theatrical and TV distribution channels by Orwell's estate and was not obtainable legally for many years, although it has since been released in DVD format and clips have been copied to the website YouTube.
