Acclaimed as a modern classic in the vein of "Brave New World" and "1984," this outstanding novel by Ray Bradbury is brought to the screen with all its vividness and imagination intact. Set in a future electronic age, all books are banned and fireman must keep fires burning at 451 degrees—the temperature at which paper burns. Julie Christie plays dual roles—one as wife of fireman Oskar Werner and the other as a book-loving schoolteacher.
