thoughts of Ray Bradbury (RIP) led me to the other major movie version of one of his books, The Illustrated Man... which isn't, as I recall, particularly good (whereas Fahrenheit 451, despite its peculiar stilted quality and leaden pacing, does manage to grip the attention and linger in the memory through its visuals and mood and overall look... there's also a  couple of really aberrant, wtf moments in it which unfortunately don't seem to be  on YouTube )...  anyway, The Illustrated Man, not very good, but it does have a cool soundtrack by Jerry Goldsmith

Goldsmith's fantastic electronic score for 1976's Logan's Run has been a favorite for a while, but I didn't realise JG had experimented with synths as early as 1969
