This dirty animal has been featured in many movies. Sometimes, they have showed a funny side of it. Now and then, dramatic moments have been associated with its appearance on a silver screen. Let us review several examples, where movie characters have pursued pigs for various reasons.
A British adventure drama Lord of the Flies, released in 1963, has vividly demonstrated, how a gang of hungry children hunt down a pig on a deserted island. A Soviet musical comedy It Can’t Be!, released in 1975, has featured a piglet, who successfully escapes from philistines. A Soviet TV musical fantasy About the Little Red Riding Hood, released in 1977, has funnily shown, how the Little Red Riding Hood saves a piglet from peasants chasing after it.
