Description
Stanley Kubrick's celebrated black comedy classic about an "accidental" nuclear attack was nominated for four 1964 Academy Awards. Created during a time when the paranoia of the Cold War was at its peak, the film still seems surprisingly relevant today. Convinced the Commies are polluting America's "precious bodily fluids," a crazed General (Sterling Hayden) orders a surprise nuclear air strike on the USSR. His aide Captain Mandrake (Peter Sellers) furiously attempts to figure out a recall code to stop the bombing. Meanwhile, the U.S. President (Sellers again) gets on the hot line to convince the drunken Soviet premier that the impending attack is a silly mistake, while the President's advisor (and ex-Nazi scientist) Dr. Strangelove (Sellers once more) confirms the existence of the dreaded Doomsday Machine -- a new secret Soviet retaliatory device guaranteed to end the human race once and for all!

      Comments about this product:

      This is an entertaining, funny, but realistic view of the Cold War and the stupidity of the players involved. Both sides are convinced the other will pre-emptively launch a nuclear attack. Finally, convinced the US must act an American General does just that. Unable to dissuade or stop the General ultimately, the US President has no choice but to order an all out nuclear attack on the USSR because the USSR would retaliate from the Generals attack thinking the US ordered the attack. After much humor getting their and a great deal of stupidity, and after destroying the world the US leaders evacuate to caves to wait out the attack and fallout. However, after destroying the world, and knowing the Russians will be in caves conclude they must develop a cave defense system or risk the Russian getting ahead of America in Cave defense. What more can be said...

        If you have ever served anywhere even in the local vicinity of a military headquarters, especially in Iraq or Afghanistan and can rememeber or have even read abook about the Cold war you will laugh until your side hurts. And then almost cry because you know its all true at some level.
