In 1964, with the Cuban Missile Crisis fresh in viewers’ minds, the Cold War at its frostiest, and the hydrogen bomb relatively new and frightening, Stanley Kubrick dared to make a film about what could happen if the wrong person pushed the wrong button – and played the situation for laughs.  Starring Peter Sellers (in multiple roles) and George C. Scott in career-defining roles.

 

Dr. Strangelove’s jet-black satire and a host of superb comic performances have kept the film fresh and entertaining. When a rogue order from a high ranking general launches an attack on the Soviet Union, everyone must ask themselves what comes next. Some sees this as an opportunity to do something about Communism in general and Russians in particular. However, the ante is upped considerably when the Soviets announce their  latest innovation in weapons technology: a “Doomsday Machine” that will destroy the entire world if the Russians are attacked.
