Fahrenheit 451

Trivia: The monorail had been built in France in 1959 as a test track.


Trivia: The books seen burning at various points in the film include several of Ray Bradbury's novels (Fahrenheit 451 itself is one of these), as well as a French cinema magazine for which director Francois Truffaut once wrote a movie column.

Trivia: In keeping with the theme of no books this movie has no text visible anywhere except the opening theatrical logo. Even the credits are not shown on the screen. The only symbols shown in the movie are numbers, such as the 451 medallions on the fire crews and their equipment. Signs can occasionally be seen in the background.

Revealing mistake: Near the beginning, Montag puts on the fireproof clothing to use the flamethrower. It's really footage of him later taking off the same equipment played in reverse.
