Animals in Film Part One: The History of the “Animals Were Not Harmed” Disclaimer

Share this:

Every regular filmgoer is familiar with the disclaimer at the end of film credits that states “no animals were harmed in the making of this film.” This message is given with the approval of the American Humane Association, which has oversight over the treatment of animals in films, but what took place to give an outside group oversight over a private industry? Today we talk about that history, which includes a horse being pushed off of a 75-foot high cliff.
