The Arson Chronicles

Author Ray Bradbury turns up the temperature on censorship and nuclear panic to Fahrenheit 451 degrees with his acclaimed 1953 novel about a book-burning dystopia.  But did French New Wave director Francois Truffaut torch those literary ambitions with his Mod movie adaptation?  And does fireman of the future Guy Montag receive the third degree from pill-popping wife Julie Christie for daring to pick up Charles Dickens, or for pointing his nozzle at a lookalike anarchist librarian?
