    The snow falling in the last scene of the movie was a lucky accident that delighted the director.

    A similar ‘lucky accident’ occurred at the end of ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ when a shepherd and his flock walked in front of the crucifixion!

    Awesome. I agree that it should be required reading but what better way to get a teenage boy to read a book.
    When I was a teenager they “hid” Catch-22 in a resource room rather than put it on the library shelf and you had to really search to find it, like it wasn’t supposed to be found. Of course I had to read it.

    Allan, not sure how old you are but the title of Michael Moore’s book and movie, Fahrenheit 9/11, was merely a play on words. It was taken from the title of Ray Bradbury’s famous (iconic, classic, MUST READ) novel, Fahrenheit 451. Get ye to the library, young man. Or the Kindle store or wherever you find reading material, because it’s now on your summer reading list. ;-)

    This strip reminds me of the Twilight Zone episode where a bookwork, played by Burgess Meredith, accidentally survives a nuclear “end-of-the-world” and then, at the very end of the episode, breaks his glasses, rendering him unable to read all his glorious books. Putting aside the fact that he wouldn’t have survived for much longer anyway, that admittedly powerful ending never made sense to me. He could simply have found an optometrist or optician’s office and replaced his broken lenses. Certainly not just give up.

    @ChessPirate

    It had nothing to do with a nuclear war. Burgess stopped time with his stopwatch.

    One of my favourite episodes BTW. Rod Serling featured wrote an episode similar to his screenplay ‘Planet Of The Apes’.

    Allan, Fahrenheit 451 is a book in which the ‘Firemen’ burn books (unapproved material). 451 is the temperature at which paper burns, hence the title. One of the books that is not approved is the Bible. I think that this was an allusion to the book burning by the Nazis. When the government starts telling the populace what it is allowed to read, what is next? what you are allowed to speak, think, act or believe? Tne PC police are herding us into this direction. America is becoming the land of the offended. You have to be careful in what you say to whom on the off-chance they may be offended and you are sued or jailed.
