Storyline: Paranoid Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper of Burpelson Air Force Base, he believing that fluoridation of the American water supply is a Soviet plot to poison the U.S. populace, is able to deploy through a back door mechanism a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union without the knowledge of his superiors, including the Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Buck Turgidson, and President Merkin Muffley. Only Ripper knows the code to recall the B-52 bombers and he has shut down communication in and out of Burpelson as a measure to protect this attack. Ripper's executive officer, RAF Group Captain Lionel Mandrake (on exchange from Britain), who is being held at Burpelson by Ripper, believes he knows the recall codes if he can only get a message to the outside world. Meanwhile at the Pentagon War Room, key persons including Muffley, Turgidson and nuclear scientist and adviser, a former Nazi named Dr...

must see film
Originally this film was supposed to be marketed to college Audiences. I think that was a complete mistake by people who do not understand the film. First, General Rippers paranoia stems from his conviction that floridation of the US water supply is a communist plot to destroy his ability to have sexual intercourse with a woman. The proof is in the pudding, because he tells his exec RAF Group Captain Mandrake (Peter Sellers) that he tried and failed. The rest of the movie steamrolls from here. Suffice to say it is fantastic. It is so realistic that when the movie debuted in theaters the USAF showed a disclaimer on the screen to terrified audiences assuring them that nothing like this could ever happen. Just see the film.

one of the greatest black comedies of all-time
Dr. Strangelove is one of the greatest black(and white) comedies of all time. It explores with humor and spine-chilling grace: will mankind survive its own madness? or are our collective flaws so great that we will wink out in an evolutionary instant? But these questions are explored in a farcical, dark work that, I suspect, will live for quite a long time in film history. Terry Southern's dark vision mixed with Shakesperean bawdiness of Peter Sellers et al makes for fascinating and delicious humor. Although this was produced at the height of the cold war, what makes this work of art a timeless classic is that it transcends its immediate theme and prompts in us in our time to view our collective madness. Do we depend too much on our technology and think-tank rationalizations to propell us in directions we would never go as a rational individuals. Do we rationalize to life shibboleths that will propel us into immolation? What a movie that asks these questions of us, ourselves, and at the same time entertains us, makes us gut-laugh and cry at the on-screen farce. Wow. Shakespeare and B-52's. Crazed generals with phallic cigars stickying jauntily out of mouth. Pentegon brass calling on secure phones to their paramours. And Peter Sellars. This is a tour d'farce for him. His multiple portrayals of the president, a British miilitary attache and Dr. Strangelove are comic masterpieces. This is a movie for the ages. If you haven't seen it, bring your brain and your tears, for you'll laugh and cry as your intellect is entertained, and that's really sho-biz, folks.

Kubrick takes a whack at comedy- and the cold war
Stanley Kubrick always likes to try something new with each movie he does, and this proves it. This is truly one of the grittiest, and best dark comedies I've ever seen with some crude moments and some odd ones (who'd think to have Slim Pickens riding a bomb on it's way down). It turns into a flat out masterpiece though with the spectacular acting by Peter Sellers (in three separate roles), George C. Scott (his facial expressions are a crack up every time), and a supporting cast of crazies in a government of loons, the most impressive of these being the incomparable Sterling Hayden in his best dramatic/funny role. It contains a resonance as well that sticks till today, as corruption and pig-headedness rules in all sorts of governments, but most of all in those with the most power. It's almost worth it just for the opening credits and end sequence with "we'll meet again".

Please no fighting in the war room
Stanley Kubrick's wickedly hilarious end-of-the-world black comedy gem about an impending nuclear war caused by human error straddles a fine line between being fiercely funny and genuinely chilling throughout: As evident by the gross behavior and arrogant attitudes of various high-ranking officials in positions of power that they are neither smart nor mature enough to properly handle, the greatest threat to mankind's safety isn't the existence of nuclear weapons; instead it's such all too real and unavoidable human foibles as pride, stupidity, and incompetence that we should all be more worried about.

The savagely mocking script by Kubrick, Peter George, and Terry Southern pulls zero punches in its no-holds-barred satirizing of said foibles and offers numerous uproarious moments of inspired dark humor: The meek and ineffectual President Merkin Muffley (Peter Sellers in one of three bravura performances) informing the drunken Soviet premier over the phone about the nuclear strike, the hysterically loony speech made by unhinged paranoid General Jack D. Ripper (robustly played with snarly aplomb by Sterling Hayden) about preserving his precious bodily fluids, gung-ho redneck bomber pilot Major 'King' Kong (a marvelously spirited portrayal by Slim Pickens) riding a nuclear missile like a bucking bronco on its final drop while whooping it up, and the gloriously insane plan for survival that batty ex-Nazi adviser Dr. Strangelove (Sellers again at his most sublimely deranged) proposes to President Muffley.

Moreover, the zestful acting from the first-rate cast keeps this movie humming: Sellers pulls off a terrific troika of impressive and highly distinctive turns as Muffley, Strangelove, and uptight RAF group captain Lionel Mandrake, George C. Scott has a field day as bellicose commie-bashing hawk General 'Buck' Turgidson, Keenan Wynn does his usual sturdy work as the gruff Colonel 'Bat' Guano, Peter Bull likewise excels as the shifty Russian ambassador Alexi de Sadesky, Tracy Reed briefly steams things up as sexy secretary Miss Scott, and James Earl Jones handles himself well in his film debut as the thorough Lieutenant Lothar Zogg. Kudos are also in order for Gilbert Taylor's sharp black and white cinematography and Laurie Johnson's rousing military marching band score. Worthy of its classic status.

I laughed, but now I laugh...until I cry.


What an excellent film. I did not understand or enjoy this film when I was younger but I would hear folks talk about it throughout my lifetime. I saw it in bits in pieces growing up and it never appealed to me. Then one day after I watched Peter Sellers in "Being There", and Stanley Krubeck died, I decided to watch Dr. Strangelove, this time all the way through.

I laughed...then I cried. The opening sequence is a sexual as they come, and the satire of way the cold war was presented will make you snicker/laugh without you really wanting to. I am a product of "after the cold war" not quite fully understanding the "who is superior" ego of the two "Super powers" of Russia and the United States until it was over and I learned about it in elementary/junior high school history classes, this film finally began to make alot of sense now that I am older.

Besides the wonderful Peter Sellers playing multiple rolls, you had the wonderful George C. Scott who had many lines that made you laugh but in 2003, I am really wondering who wrote those lines for him with what we have approaching. Same with Slim Pickens and Sterling Hayden. Looking around the backgrounds the one thing that made me roll over with laughter was the Air Force bases with BIG signs declaring, "Peace is our Business". And of course the immortal line from Peter Sellers as George C. Scott was claiming that a Russian Ambass. was taking pictures of the war room and they got into a scuffle. Peter Sellers, as President of the United States tells them: "Gentlemen, there is no fighting in the war room."

This film depicts a past fear of a bomb that shouldn't have been directed to be shot, and the retaliation of the country being shot of. I say past, since this was 1964. I am writing this in 2003 and the past, has sadly become a fear of the present. A must see brilliant film. One of the 10 best of all time.

Black comedy at its Zenith...
Never has the absurdity of war been so bitingly and accurately skewered as it was in the 1964 classic Dr. Strangelove: Or How Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. a scorching black comedy that sheds a very unflattering but unfortunately probably spot-on look not only at war, but the mental capacities of the people who have their hands on the button.

Director Stanley Kubrick has created his masterpiece here, chronicling what happens when a clearly insane military general who triggers an attack on the Soviet Union that could lead to nuclear holocaust and how the President of the US and his advisers try to deal with the repercussions.

Released during the infancy of the Vietnam War, this film probably ruffled a lot of feathers in Washington, though I don't know for sure, since I was only six year old at the time, but the film can now be cherished for the scathingly brilliant satire that it is.

Kubrick's masterful direction is only surpassed by the brilliantly tongue-in-cheek screenplay by Kubrick, Terry Southern, and Peter George, that was clearly robbed of an Oscar. As for casting, it's perfection...Peter Sellers' powerhouse performance where he effortlessly brings three different characters to life is a joy to behold. Sellers, too, was robbed of an Oscar for Outstanding Lead Actor. My personal favorite of his three characters was President Muffley, who is given the best line in the movie and whose first phone conversation with the President of the USSR (Dimitri) to explain what's going on had me on the floor. Sellers has never made me laugh so hard, and I've seen most of the Pink Panther movies. Kubrick pulled the performance of his career out of Sterling Hayden as the insane general as was George C. Scott's bigoted military leader who is possibly as crazy as Hayden's character. Scott is brash and funny and was Oscar-worthy as well.

Kubrick's attention to detail in bringing this epic story to life works on every level. The black and white photography only adds to the realism and there is impressive art direction and inventive camera- work, but it is the Oscar worthy work by Kubrick, Sellers, Scott, Southern, and George that make this one sizzle and earn it the well-deserved reputation of a classic.

The only true satire of government ever made!!
Dear Movie Afficiandos;

When you see Dr. Stranglove, you will never forget the robotic arm of the doctor, that just can't stop going Zieg Hail, whenever he speaks.

Stanley Kubrick, a complex man who made even more complex movies, can easily be remembered by one word. Genius. As most fans of Kubrick know, he would shoot one scene roughly seven or eight times, so he could pick the best take in editing. He was also constanly pushing actors to become the charcter more, if ever they got tired of doing the scene he simply remarked, "Don't you want to get it right?" It becomes quite evident that the product of his pursiut of perfection in films, was Dr. Strangelove. This is the movie to which all the other Failsafe and Sum Of All Fears type movies were drafted from. Although failsafe was orginally a novel, it was Strangelove that inspired the movie to have three distinct scences in the movie, and also a twist semi-anti-climatic ending. The reason Dr. Strangelove has stood for so many years as a great film is because of it's real depictions of characters. Major Turgidson, Dr. Strange, the President, are all charcters that seem to be taken right out of a real life Cold War situation. Even the dim witted president is true to life, but don't call the president a moron or you may end up in jail. It is through excellent charcterization that Kubrick shows the fickleness of alliances, man's insecurity, and the nuclear weapons being an extension of the male appendige. Kubrick true to his form, never insults his audience by telling or explaining why a certain charcter or symbol is in the film. He let's you put it together, and it is in this putting together, that the film becomes transfixed in your mind. For example, Seller's third charcter's name, Mandrake, it actually the name of a natural aphrodisiac. Another example, when the U.S. war plane, manned by the crazed general, enters the Russian borders, it it described as "pentetrating through the hard outer walls of the border and speeding down the narrow canal to the small center target." Small dialouges like this reinforce indirectly the main theme's for this movie. Most movies made during this time in the 60's, that depict the time frame shortly after the war are pro-government. The government is all good in these movies, becasue it just whooped the Nazi's. Yet in Strangelove, the U.S. is working with a Nazi defective to defeat the Soviets. What an odd twist eh? It's small attacks on the government like this, that made the military not cooperate with Kubrick for any of his demands to visit the inside of an acutall base, or B-52 hanger. In short, see Dr. Strangelove and you will not be dissapointed. No movie will make the truth about humanity more clear; when humans try and solve complex problems, we enevitably revert back to school yard mentality.

My favorite movie of all time, bar none
One of the funniest and yet most poignant movies I have ever seen. Kubrick is at his best here, as usual showing what can happen when a finely tuned system built by humans (in this case, the tremendous infrastructure of Mutually Assured Destruction) just doesn't work. As usual, Kubrick's point is that the system is only as good as the people running it, and here the people running it are hilariously bad. Career-peak performances by George C. Scott, Slim Pickens, and of course Peter Sellers, Peter Sellers and Peter Sellers.

Despite many of this movie's hilarious moments having entered general popular culture, when you watch it they are still funny enough to make you laugh out loud. And there are yet many more comic gems to delight the unfamiliar viewer. I've seen Strangelove twice in theaters in the last couple of years ... I was stunned to find packed audiences screaming with laughter and delighted to learn that I'm not the only one who finds it hilarious, even decades after filming.

Sellers should have never lost the Oscar to Rex Harrison
The Academy has made some stupid decisions for the duration of its existence. Arguably, its stupidest one was made in 1960. I love the movie My Fair Lady as much as the next musical enthusiast, but considering the strong (triple!) performances he gave in Dr. Strangelove, it was simply a travesty that Peter Sellers did not win the Oscar that year. This film is one of the best, if not the best, of Sellers' career, and my favorite of Stanley Kubrick's. It's definitely a thinking person's film; masterfully executed dark humor and satire. A definite must-see. ****/4

Better laugh at absurdity than cry
This film has become a cultish film because of the subject of course but especially because of the tone that is really entirely conveyed by two actors, Peter Sellers and his three roles and George C. Scott. We could add Slim Pickens in the batch with his phenomenal dive into nuclear annihilation at the end.

The subject is central in our post WW2 world since it has to do with nuclear weapons and war. These weapons have only been used once, in fact twice, by the USA against Japan in 1945. The deterring effect of the possession of such weapons is supposed to keep the world as peaceful as it can be, though we all know it is not exactly true since wars have been going on practically constantly since 1945, for oil, for uranium, for who knows what other resources or tribal heritage from the centuries of slavery imposed onto black Africa, or the centuries of rife between sects in some religions. But they were always limited geographically. Most of these wars, apart from the direct colonial wars of Great Britain (not so many) and France (essentially two in Indochina and in Algeria) were the deeds of the USA: Korea, Vietnam, and the Middle East, and should I not mention Granada and Panama? The Soviet Union only had one in Afghanistan and they stepped out of it in front of the resistance from the Taliban and the Mujahedeen, armed and financed by the USA and the CIA. These movements gave rise to Al Qaeda and later ISIS.

In 1964 just after the missile crisis in Cuba the world had just gone through a terrible scare and Stanley Kubrick wanted to produce a film that would make the world realize how dangerous these weapons can be and how little we can stop them when they are already in the air. He decided to make it a comedy by using Peter Sellers in three different parts in which his improvising was able to make a real hit on the psyche of an audience. And it is a success and it is still valid.

The argument is that there will always be some crazy guy who will be able to bypass all limitations and firewalls to play a trick on the world, on the USSR at the time and Russia nowadays, or even China for the more reckless, and manage a bomb and today a missile to reach the other side and start the ABSOLUTELY AUTOMATIC responding defense that would become a tremendous back-attack or act of final justified but lethal compensation. As the one who started the scare in this film, and the final holocaust, says so well just before committing suicide "I believe there is another life on the other side!" That is in the drastic situation the most humorous, a very black humor indeed, remark you can utter.

The mad Nazi scientist Dr. Strangelove is the most frighteningly hilarious character you can imagine, selling his nuclear knowledge and knowhow to the USA with only one intention: to get to the nuclear holocaust he had been preparing in Germany for Hitler and he was not able to perform or achieve. He is mad, he is deranged, he is physically handicapped, he is erratic and his artificial arm is only remembering his glorious Nazi time and is taking over from time to time to salute his leader, Heil and Heil again.

All that is dealt with humorously but it is dramatic and today in the situation of two wars, in Afghanistan on one side, and in Iraq- Syria on the other hand, plus the Korean situation that is poisoned by the unpredictable erratic attitude of President Trump in front of a young leader in North Korea who is either right to resist American imperialism or wrong to endanger the survival of the whole planet, today we can feel it resonate with strength and power.

Can there be any reasonable tempered, and well-tempered at that, moderate and realistic compromise to find a solution to the problem without having the USA continuing in their unacceptable track of dictating what one man, one president wants, even when this is purely unethical and absurd? No one in the world, and certainly not any god in existence, has the right to dictate to other countries what they have to do and what norms they have to respect and implement: the one size fits all of the Monroe Doctrine has to be once and for all sent back to the prop-store of an out-of-use theater.

TO DIE IN ORDER TO SURVIVE, WHAT A JOY! Amazon February 11, 2001

Kubrick touches a very sensitive subject in this film, a subject that should remind us of man's supreme ability at destroying himself and surviving his own destruction. He points out how any nuclear protocol has a hole somewhere or a loophole to go around any kind of security precautions. Nuclear weapons are our unredeemable doom. They can only lead to a catastrophe.

And humanity is such that it will enjoy destroying itself and then mobilize its intelligence to just survive in order to start again. There is no hope what so ever. Kubrick deals with this subject in a very humorous way but every detail is there to show that the patriotic motivation of any man justifies in his mind any possible crime or just folly. Man is a fool and his foolishness can know no end.
