Ray Bradbury was an American fantasy, science fiction, horror and mystery fiction writer. Bradbury is one of the most celebrated 20th-century American writers, best known for his dystopian novel “Fahrenheit 451.” Here we have David L. Wolper’s 1963 short-documentary on Ray Bradbury: Story of a Writer, in which he shares a wealth of insight on writing, some advice on perseverance, and his singular lens on the storyteller’s task.
“I’m a storyteller — that’s all I’ve never tried to be. I guess in ancient times, I would’ve been somewhere in the marketplace, alongside the magician, delighting the people. I’d rather delight and entertain than anything else.” – Ray Bradbury –
