Fahrenheit 451 (1966)

Watch Trailer

Director: François Truffaut
Starring: Oskar Werner, Julie Christie, Cyril Cusack


From the Ray Bradbury novel, Fahrenheit 451 is the temperature that paper will burst into flame. Oskar Werner plays a fireman who does not put out fires, but who searches out books and burns them. Books make people unhappy. In a parody of social correctness, all discordant strains are removed. The world is a lonely one of separate people in which Werner begins to read the books before burning them.

Fahrenheit 451 is an intriguing film that suffuses Truffaut’s trademark wit and black humor with the intelligence and morality of Ray Bradbury’s novel.
