Author Ray Bradbury never did any fact-checking in regards to the title. He asked a fire chief at what temperature book paper burned, and was given the answer "451 degrees Fahrenheit." He liked the title so much that he didn't bother to see if it was the correct temperature.Although there is no standard tests for determining ignition temperatures, 451F has been measured to be paper's ignition temperature.

At around 54 Minutes into the Film, Michael Shannons character Cpt. Beatty speaks to his men with a megaphone. This scene is completely mirrored, as Beattys Leathercoat has his Button Row now on the left side, and the 451 on the Fire-Truck is mirrored, too. See more »
I've seen Truffaut's version from the 60's two or three times even if it wasn't perfect for a great admirer of the book but it had Oskar Werner and Julie Christie and Cyril Cusack and a phenomenal score by Bernard Herrmann. This 2018 version has an interesting production design but the the actual center of this warning tale is completely lost. The pacing is infuriating and Michael Shannon as good as he is, he's becoming the go to guy to play the bad guy. Here everything is on the nose and by the numbers. So, disappointed. Michael B Jordan has amazing eyes but I wish he can find a great actor's director. He certainly deserve it.
