Fahrenheit 451

  1. Friday, March 27, 2015 9:30 p.m.
Image from the film Fahrenheit 451.
One of the best known adaptations of Bradbury’s work, this film was the first and only English-language work from the prolific and influential François Truffaut. Bradbury and Truffaut did not directly collaborate on the film, but the two established and maintained a correspondence which lasted until Truffaut’s untimely death, and frequently considered working together on other projects. Truffaut stays remarkably close to Bradbury’s story, but makes some significant changes which impressed Bradbury so much that he used them himself in his later stage play version of Fahrenheit 451.
