Trivia

When originally aired, the credits made no mention of Ray Bradbury, despite the fact that the story is an almost perfect copy of Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451." Bradbury sued CBS, and after the first court ruled against him, he appealed and won. CBS appealed, but the Supreme Court let the ruling stand. See more »
