Sad to see him go. My fav is Fahrenheit 451. Yours?

In one of our local forums, someone just posted an excerpt from "There Will Come Soft Rains". The one of the image of the family burned into the outer wall of their home after the nuclear blast. Chilling..

Langy esők jönnek. This is the hungarian title.
Time is quarter past ten.
One of my favourites.

I remember, I was roused from my dream often in my childhood,
maybe the tram pantograph flashed, perhaps a distant lightning and I thought
(while I waiting for firestorm) a handicapped individual is now pressed the button.
We can say it, I do not sleep recently better.

Ron Serling made that into a Twilight Zone. Ray mixed sci-fi and American folk better than anyone, one of a kind.

EDIT - Maybe I'm confused, I know I saw a dramatization of this since it was during the "scare you with nukes era" but I can't find it now.

My wife is Peruvian, so we are often watching movies in both Spanish and English. Some translations are just horrendous.

I would hope that Mr. Bradbury's words have been translated well across many languages.

In Fahrenheit 451, what struck me most was Montag's wife who felt the constant need to escape from reality confined to talking nonsense with the characters on the walls.

Scott,

Thanks for the tip. I was just a shy young for his shows when they first aired. Yes, Rod was one of a kind. I definitely will look that one up and put it on my 'must see' list.

He was so well respected that Shatner didn't over-act too much in his Twilight Zone episode!

The Hungarian translations are excellent.
Just so it is possible to feel the special atmosphere of the novels, which only Bradbury's own.

I just found a complete list of Serling's robot stories and Ray's only contribution was "I Sing the Body Electric". I'm baffled since I can see the kids ball and shadow burned into the house like it was yesterday. Could it be a recurring nightmare from reading the "Martian Cronicles"? I watched every scary/sci-fi TV show that came along.

BTW there is a Peruvian restaurant, quite good, at our new place in SF, CA. I do like a Pisco sour now and then.
