The 60s series continues. The latest is FAHRENHEIT 451 (linked). Directed by Françcois Truffaut based on Ray Bradbury’s 1951 novel about a world where books are banned, and burned. Nicholas Roeg was the cinematographer. At that point sci-fi wasn’t considered a serious genre on film, due to shaky SFX. Truffaut got round the issue. Starring Oskar Werner, Julie Christie, Cyril Cusack and Anton Diffring. Julie Christie seems to excite particular attention in these reviews from gentlemen of my generation. The good news is that she plays both the wife and the girlfriend.
