Quotes from

Guy Montag: [trying to figure out why Clarisse was fired] You must've said something that...
Clarisse: Oh I never got along well with the staff, they disapprove of me... I... don't always stick to the times tables... well we have fun in my class, and they don't like that.


The Captain: Trouble between you and the Pole, Montag?


Guy Montag: Tell me, this uncle of yours, did he ever tell you not to talk to strangers?
Clarisse: No, he did say once if anyone asked how old I was to say I was 20 and light in the head. They always seem to go together.
Guy Montag: Light in the head?
Clarisse: Mm-hmm, loopy, crazy.

Facts about

The location filming of the final sequence with the "Book People" took place in poor weather. It was hoped that the weather would improve for the final days of shooting. Instead, they discovered that it had begun snowing during the night. The filming of the final shots while it was snowing was an unplanned contribution to the film's memorable ending.
The film's credits are spoken, not read, in keeping with the film's theme of destruction of reading material.
Director 'Francois Truffaut' cast Oskar Werner, the star of his classic Jules et Jim, in the role of Guy Montag after Terence Stamp dropped out of the role, because he was uneasy at co-starring with Julie Christie, his former lover. Stamp also felt that Christie's appearing in dual roles would overshadow him. Losing his ideal Montag (the film after all was set in England), Truffaut turned to the Austrian Werner, whose accent and demeanor were decidedly non-English. Truffaut came to regret his choice as he became dismayed by Werner's interpretation of the character and the two frequently clashed.
