Director Stanley Kubrick does it again. After having filmed such films as "Paths of Glory" and "Spartacus" he comes back with an off beat movie comedy titled "Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb". Can you imagine what studio executives must have thought when he proposed all this for financing? He has a great cast led by Peter Sellers, playing as he did in Kubrick's "Lolita", multiple roles. He also took the great George C. Scott and Sterling Hayden to make up a group of generals. As in most Kubrick movies, he takes a part in the screen writing. He keeps you laughing and this is the only comedy he would ever film. This truly is a film that you have to see to believe it. If I wrote any more details, you would just think I was an overly impressed film fan.
"Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" I loved your message and I won't stop worrying about the bomb! (You taught me too well Mr. Kubrick);

This movie has more comic geniuses in it than any other movie I can think of. Peter Sellers is great in multiple roles. George C. Scott plays it so serious that he scares you at the same time your laughing. I really feel this is a All Time Comedy Classic and one of our countries finest films.

Peter Sellers
George C. Scott

This is a narration about an "accidental" US nuclear air strike on USSR.

Peter Sellers plays a triple role:
(a) Presidential aide,
(b) US President; and
(c) ex-Nazi scientist and Presidential advisor.

A suspense comedy.

Worth watching.
