The 25 Most Memorable Communist Villains In Movies

3. Napoleon, Animal Farm (1954)

Voiced by: Maurice Denham

In the original Animal Farm novel by George Orwell, the pig Napoleon was based on Soviet icon Joseph Stalin, so when the story made its way to the big screen in animated form, it's only logical that this swine became one of the most famous cinematic commies. After taking over the farm from the humans, Napoleon placed himself and a select group of other pigs in charge and declared “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.”

When Napoleon’s rule began, it’s with the promise of peace and prosperity for all, but it soon devolved into a dictatorship as the pigs grew fat off of the hard work of others. This is still one of the only movies to take the communist ideology to task, as opposed to just making them generic villains.
