In an oppressive future, a fireman whose duty is to destroy all books begins to question his task.
While shooting in London, Truffaut felt no rapport with the English crew (since he spoke only French), so when not on set he stayed in his hotel room for the six months of the shoot, having all his meals sent up. When he got back to Paris, his friends asked him what swinging London was like and he answered, "I don't know - I just got out of the Hilton."
An Enterprise Vineyard Production. Oskar Werner, Julie Christie... in Fahrenheit four-five-one.
Montag's hair in the final scene is different than it is in the rest of the film. This is because Oskar Werner, to show his dislike of director François Truffaut, purposely did this to create a continuity error.
The beginning credits are spoken instead of written on the screen.
Originally Noel Davis (who plays Cousin Midge) did the opening voice over. In the current version it is done by Alex Scott ("The Life of Henry Brulard" Book Person).
