Ray Bradbury's best-selling science fiction masterpiece about a future without books takes on a realistic dimension in this classic directed by Francois Truffaut. Julie Christie stars in the dual role of Oskar Werner's pleasure-seeking, conformist wife, Linda, and his rebellious, book-collecting mistress, Clarisse. A firefighter in charge of burning the forbidden volumes meets a revolutionary schoolteacher who dares to read. Suddenly, he finds himself to be a hunted fugitive, forced to choose between not only two women, but between personal safety and intellectual freedom. Produced by Lewis Allen.
