March 25: Dr. Strangelove

Moderator: tba

Dr. Strangelove, is a 1964 political black comedy film that satirizes the Cold War fear of a nuclear conflict between the USSR and the USA. The story concerns an unhinged United States Air Force general who unleashes an ingenious foolproof and irrevocable scheme sending bombers to attack Russia. It follows the President of the United States, his advisers, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and a Royal Air Force (RAF) officer as they try to recall the bombers to prevent a nuclear apocalypse. Widely regarded as one of cinema’s greatest comedies, it was directed, produced, and co-written by Stanley Kubrick, stars Peter Sellers and George C. Scott, and features Sterling Hayden, Keenan Wynn, and Slim Pickens. The film is loosely based on Peter George’s thriller novel Red Alert.
