Legendary science-fiction author Ray Bradbury passed away Wednesday morning in Los Angeles. Bradbury, who was 91, leaves behind a legacy that extends beyond the literature community, with tens of TV and film credits to his name.
Here at HuffPost Entertainment, we've collected some of the "Fahrenheit 451" author's most notable film and TV moments. Interestingly, Bradbury has a great deal of foreign language writing credits, including six episodes of 2004's "Un, Dos, Tres ... Resonda Otra Vez."
Bradbury is also credited with "El Que Espera" and "El Umbral," from 2004 and 2003, respectively.
Of his work in television, the late author is perhaps best known for "The Ray Bradbury Theater," a series that spanned the late '80s and early '90s. Bradbury has 58 credits from that show, writing both the screenplays and the stories that inspired them.
Bradbury's efforts were not confined to screenwriting alone. The man of many talents' most recent onscreen appearance was in 1996's "Corwin," a biography of the great writer and producer.
He also wrote the original treatment for Universal's first 3-D movie, 1953's "It Came From Outer Space." Three years later, Josh Huston's "Moby Dick" adaptation debuted. Bradbury wrote the screenplay for the film, which starred Gregory Peck.
Francois Truffaut chose Fahrenheit 451 for his first color movie (and only English-language project).
Of course, Michael Moore's meditation on post-September 11 America, "Fahrenheit 911," winked at Bradbury's dystopian novel as well.
As though movies, television and books weren't large enough worlds to conquer, Bradbury's influence extended into the the music world as well. Just this year, his short story "The Veldt" inspired progressive house music producer Deadmau5 to create a song by the same name. Deadmau5 (who's real name is Joel Zimmerman) posted the instrumental for the song online and eventually released a vocal mix that featured a previously unknown singer who posted a YouTube cover of the track with original lyrics.

Ray Bradbury on Writing Persistently
The Ray Bradbury Theater presents 'Tyrannosaurus Rex'
Bradbury's short story Tyrannosaurus Rex (originally published in 1962 under the title The Prehistoric Producer), his affectionate tribute to his childhood bud Ray Harryhausen, was later adapted by Bradbury as the basis for an episode of his cable television anthology show The Ray Bradbury Theater. In Tyrannosaurus Rex (originally broadcast on May 14, 1988), the main character, a mild-mannered animator named John Terwilliger (Cris Campion), is obviously inspired by Harryhausen. Terwilliger is hired by movie producer Joe Clarence (Joe Dunk) to provide the special effects for a low-budget prehistoric fantasy. Terwilliger accepts the job with some trepidation, mainly because of Clarence's reputation as a tyrannical bully. Confined to a wheelchair with a malignant growth on his forehead, Clarence is a bitter, ill-tempered, stingy misanthrope who never allows those who have the misfortune to be employed by him to forget who holds the purse strings. Clarence is especially dissatisfied with the Tyrannosaurus Rex that Terwilliger is creating for the picture. No matter how many times Terwilliger redesigns the clay-and-rubber miniature, Clarence insists that it's not "scary enough." At his wit's end, Terwilliger finally decides that, if Clarence wants a truly terrifying monster, he knows exactly who to use as the model for his T-Rex. A charming parody of the film industry, Tyrannosaurus Rex has the added bonus of giving fans of stop-action animation a behind-the-scenes glimpse of <b>...</b>
