By James H. Burns: A LOST Ray Bradbury Documentary? I rather serendipitously came across this 1963 Ray Bradbury documentary from David L. Wolper’s and Mel Stuart’s Story Of* series (this one produced and directed by Terry Sanders).
The Story of a Writer features some amazing footage of Bradbury at home, 1963 California (including the Pickwick bookstore), and a dramatization of “Dial Double Zero.”
There’s also a nice mystery for those gathered here. Is the budding writer shown at about 16:16-ish a fan of the era, and are those fanzines, Mystic and Daphnis he pulls out of his valise, or stories? Also, at about 18:20-ish, who are the participants in Bradbury’s writers’ group (or, are they simply actors)?
This is a lovely bit of filmmaking.
