Ray Bradbury's "Pillar Of Fire"

A 2175 m 4545461

In the year 2349, the world has been cleansed of both superstition and dead bodies. But in a windy graveyard, a 400 year-old corpse stirs! William Lantry is the last dead man on Earth. And he just woke up... This rendition of Ray Bradbury’s 1948 Pillar Of Fire is 50 minutes of pure prose magic; a loving tribute to the Master Of Imagination by an actor who adored him. Pillar Of Fire was written at a time when Americans were burning comic books to protect young minds from the dangers of "morbid entertainment." Come hear Ray Bradbury's powerful response to the burners of books and destroyers of imagination. The text includes Bradbury's famously eloquent defense of Halloween.
