Ray Bradbury From Science to the Supernatural: A Sound of Different Drummers

When: Fri., March 27, 6:30 p.m. 2015

This rarely seen Playhouse 90 live TV play from the 1950s presents a scenario which is remarkably similar to Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. Bradbury himself was surprised to see it, and promptly embarked on legal action for breach of copyright. Bradbury was ultimately successful, and the play was withdrawn from circulation, and never again shown. Our screening gives a unique opportunity to view this early work of director John Frankenheimer —and to compare it to the authorized film adaptation of Fahrenheit 451 which was made a decade later.
