An iconic figure of the 1960s, actress Julie Christie was an Academy Award-winning actress who appeared in a small but substantial number of classic films in her native England and America during the '60s and early 1970s. She was perhaps best known to international audiences as Lara in David Lean's "Doctor Zhivago" (1965), but also enjoyed memorable leading roles in Robert Altman's "McCabe and Mrs. Miller" (1971) and "Shampoo" (1975), both starring her longtime romantic companion Warren Beatty. An independent attitude and interest in political affairs reduced her screen appearances in the 1980s, but she made a triumphant return to film in the mid-1990s in Kenneth Branagh's "Hamlet" (1996). Since then, she made several notable movies, including "Afterglow" (1997) with Altman, which netted her third Academy Award nomination, before playing the mother of Achilles in "Troy" (2004), Madame Rosmerta in "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" (2004), and Kate Winslet's disapproving mother in "Finding Neverland" (2004). In "Away from Her" (2006), she gave a moving performance as a woman stricken with Alzheimer's that earned her high praise and a number of critics awards, all of which solidified Christie's standing as one of the finest veteran actresses of her time.

QUOTES FROM Julie Christie CHARACTERS

Betty Logan says: You're the quarterback.

Clarisse says: One more question.

Montag says: Another one?

Clarisse says: Just a little tiny one.

Montag says: What is it?

Clarisse says: Do you ever read the books you burn?

Montag says: Why should I? First, I’m not interested; second, I’ve better things to do; and third, it is forbidden.

Clarisse says: Of course! Are you happy?

Montag says: What? Of course I’m happy…

Thetis says: If you stay in Larissa, you will find peace. You will find a wonderful woman, and you will have sons and daughters, who will have children. And they'll all love you and remember your name. But when your children are dead, and their children after them, your name will be forgotten... If you go to Troy, glory will be yours. They will write stories about your victories in thousands of years! And the world will remember your name. But if you go to Troy, you will never come back... for your glory walks hand-in-hand with your doom. And I shall never see you again.

Clarisse says: Tell me, why do you burn books?

Montag says: What? Well, it's a job like any other. Good work with lots of variety. Monday, we burn Miller; Tuesday, Tolstoy; Wednesday, Walt Whitman; Friday, Faulkner; and Saturday and Sunday, Schopenhauer and Satre. "We burn them to ashes and then burn the ashes." that's our official motto.

Montag says: What? Well, it's a job like any other. Good work with lots of variety. Monday, we burn Miller; Tuesday, Tolstoy, Wednesday, Walt Whitman, Friday, Faulkner; and Saturday and Sunday, Schopenhauer and Satre. 'We burn them to ashes and then burn the ashes.' that's our official motto.

Clarisse says: Is it true that a long time ago firemen used to put out fire and not burn books?

Montag says: Really, your uncle is right. You are light in the head. "Put fires out"? Who told you that?

Montag says: Really, your uncle is right. You are light in the head. 'Put fires out?' Who told you that?

Clarisse says: I don't know. Someone. But is it true?

Montag says: What a strange idea. Houses have always been fireproof.

Clarisse says: Ours isn't.

Montag says: Well, then, it should be condemned one of these days. It has to be destroyed and you will have to move to a house that is fireproof.

Clarisse says: Too bad.

Clarisse says: Tell me, that number you all wear, what's it mean?

Montag says: Oh, fahrenheit 451.

Clarisse says: Why 451 rather than 813 or 121?

Montag says: Fahrenheit 451 is the temperature at which book paper catches fire and starts to burn.

Clarisse says: Even with my eyes closed, I could tell what you do for a job.

Montag says: Because of the smell of kerosene?

Clarisse says: Huh.

Montag says: Quite a scent, isn't it? My wife doesn't like it very much. She says it lingers. I don't mind. I think of it as a... perfume.

Clarisse says: My uncle says I am a veritable well of words.

Montag says: Has this uncle of yours ever warned you never to speak to strangers?

Clarisse says: No. He did say once if anyone asked how old I was to say I was twenty years old and light in the head. They always go together.

Montag says: "Light in the head"?

Montag says: 'Light in the head'?

Clarisse says: Mmm. Loopy. Crazy. Anyway, you don't frighten me.
