Most widely held works by Nicolas Roeg
Fahrenheit 451 by François Truffaut( Visual )

26 editions published between 1966 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 2,006 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this society of the future the job of firemen is to hunt out and incinerate books. 451 degrees F. is the temperature at which they burn. Typically Truffaut sought for new ways to combine pre-existing elements and unsettle audience expectations. Here he makes the fantastic seem banal and the banal seem strange. He strips Bradbury's story of its futuristic elements and apocalyptic ending in blending elements of the recent past and the near future. Truffaut humanises Bradbury's abstract characters blurring the clear-cut opposition between Montag and the Captain. Julie Christie's dual roles suggest the potential for both submission and revolt in most of us
