Fahrenheit 451
FAHRENHEIT 451 The Facts

Among the books burned by the firemen is the film journal "Cahiers du Cinéma" for which director Francois Truffaut wrote. Pictured on the cover is a picture from Ŕ bout de souffle (1960), written by Truffaut. Also among the books burned is "The Martian Chronicles" and "Fahrenheit 451" itself, both written by Ray Bradbury.

Director Francois Truffaut was so eager to begin filming that he and co-writer Jean-louis Richard wrote the screenplay before they had fully mastered English. Ultimately, Truffaut was disappointed in the awkward, stilted English-language dialogue; he was much happier with the French-dubbed version, which he supervised.

The film's credits are spoken, not read, in keeping with the film's theme of destruction of reading material.
