Born to Run is a rock album by singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen, released in 1975 (see 1975 in music).
His third album, Born to Run was Springsteen's breakthrough hit and launched his career in the United States and around the world.
In terms of the original LP's sequencing, Springsteen adopted a "four corners" approach, as the songs beginning each side ("Thunder Road", "Born to Run") were uplifting odes to escape, while the songs ending each side ("Backstreets", "Jungleland") were sad epics of loss, betrayal, and defeat.
BornFree is a 1966 motion picture written by Hollywood fllisted writer Lester Cole using the pseudonym "Gerald L.C. Copley." His screenplay was based upon the true-life 1960 international bestselling book written by Joy Adamson about her, her game warden husband, George Adamson, and Elsa, the orphaned cub lioness they raised while living in Kenya.
The film is noted for its soundtrack composed by John Barry that, in addition to winning two Academy Awards, became a pop music hit for Roger Williams and for Matt Monro who sang the title song in the film.
The making of the film was a life-changing experience for actors Virginia McKenna and her husband Bill Travers who became animal rights activists and who were instrumental in creating the BornFree Foundation.
